20 more mnutes on the canner

There is 20 minutes more to wait until the chili I am canning today is done in the canner. Then it has to go back to zero and I will take the jars out and listen for the pop, pop, pop. I used new jars today so I am hoping I have a better seal rate. I did have a hard time today keeping the pressure at the right point on the gauge for some reason today though.

The reason I have been canning lately is to make meals that are easy for the girls and they wont end up spending so much money on fast food.
Here is a list of the things I am planning to can.
1. chili
2. ham and beans
3. mexican meatball soup
4. porcupine meatballs
I need suggestions for other meals to can. Does anyone have any ideas?

Good for you! I just checked you blog, and found this. I actually canned my experimental chili beans today. I will let you know how it turns out after they sit around for a while in the juice. :)
