Okay guys, so I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be filming a canning video in late May. Yay! (If you follow me on Facebook, this isn’t news to you). I’m having a problem though, and I’m hoping you can help me out with some advice.
In the film, I really want to demonstrate how to can a good variety of foods. Ambitious as I tend to be, I’ve made a huge list of things I’d love to show you how to can. Unfortunately, we only have a limited amount of time to film, and there’s no way I can fit in everything I want to do. I have to decide what to put in the DVD, and what to cut. Since you are my audience, I really need to hear what YOU want to see!
So how about it… what do you want me to show you how to can??
Here’s what I’m thinking so far…
- Applesauce and Apple Jelly (from one batch of apples)
- Pear halves
- Grape Juice
- Pie Filling (Apple or peach?)
- Tomatoes (Hoping I can find some good ones this time of year!)
- Tomato Sauce
- Spaghetti Sauce (Maybe? Or maybe just the tomato sauce, which can be used as a base.)
- Green Beans (Again, hopefully I can find some!)
- Dried Beans
- Ground Beef
- Beef Stew
- Cubed Chicken
- Chicken Broth
Anything else you’d like to see in particular?? I have no idea if I’ll be able to fit all of this into the two days of filming we’ll be doing. I’ll probably have to number them by priority, and just do as much as I can. I’m thinking I should have scheduled filming for mid-summer, when the harvests will be coming in! Oh well, I do really want to get this project completed asap.
Anyways, I’m anxious to hear your thoughts! Hopefully you can help me narrow it down!
