It is so hot today in NC. the best thing for old folks like me is to keep my hams in the cool house...(thank you God for a/c)..
Just because I'm inside doesn't mean I can't do something constructive (besides clean :o)..I decided to give "my girl" (Me) hahaha a break in this heat ..
I decided it was a good time to sit down at the "Canning Closet" (feels good saying that one, and it was work)...anyway...I went through a few doz. jars, some were Antiques with the bale's and I wanted to make sure they would give a tight seal..I have plans for them in my next canning venture ..I want to put some nice string beans and potatoes in them and also some soup for those days when I'm tired, sick, our just plain busy and don't want to make a big meal...I make what I call "Angel Biscuits" (they really are more like rolls..but I can't claim that title.. :o) I let them rise..then freeze then... I can add them to the meal straight from the freezer to the oven and Cecil and I are happy. I found a couple of jars that I had forgotten I had..and almost lost them...when I was ill the kids called themselves "cleaning up" and I had to raise a little hell ..."D*** it don't throw my jars out, I'm not dead yet!" They didn't mess with me :o)..This one is 102 years old...Finally something else older than me :o)
