This is the canner that I use. It belonged to my DH's mom at one time. It has definitely been put to use over the years. I canned three canners of green beans, that is 18 quarts of greens of beans, we will really enjoy them this fall and winter. I know that is just the first of many times it will be used this summer.
My second project this week was a new one for me, Strawberry jalapeno preserves. I have to be honest I didn't know how this one would turn out but it is really good. I found the recipe in Mother Earth news, I did add more strawberries than the recipe called for and I still think that I could have added a few more, it is more "pepperie" than strawberryish.

The finished product
Hopefully no more gardening this week and I can do some sewing.
