Recipe source: for the chicken; for the beets

This was very good. We used pesto that I made this summer with basil from BP’s garden, and the beets also were from BP’s garden. It was the first jar we’ve used from our stash.

The chicken dish especially caught my eye because it not only used pesto but it also used pancetta, which is always delicious.

81. canned beets

with one comment

Recipe source: Ball canning book

Though BP and I did not actually use our own kitchen for this project, we did take all of the beets from our garden to BP’s mom’s house so she could show us how to use a steam pressure canner. We had enough beets for 23 pints.

I’d never canned before, and it was a fun experience. BP and I think we’re confident that we can do it on our own next time.

We canned the beets just as they are. We’ll probably pickle them as we use them.
