Video: Canning Stuff 1

Wondering more about what equipment is required for successful home "water bath" canning? This video shows the things Ol' Myrt used when she made the Strawberry-Lemon Marmalade earlier this week. That's my grandmother's canner, with a new-fangled jar lifter, new jar lids, CERTO by Sure-Jell and such.

We had to take a "freshly baked muffin" break, so stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow.  

All this makes you wonder how our ancestors had time to do anything else but manage food preparation. Well, we have microwaves and giving us more time to do our genealogy research!

Happy family tree climbing!
