Canning 101

We have veggies EVERYWHERE right now, and as I may have mentioned, the slightest glance in their direction makes me want to hurl due to my current state :/ But we've worked too hard at growing this year to let them all go to waste! So, today had been a Canning 101 lesson for the hubby. Boy has this been an experience ;)
Here he is preparing his peppers; we/he canned Chicken -heart peppers, Fluorescent Purple Peppers and Banana Peppers.

And then we/he started on our 100 million gazillion pounds of pickles!

The man used a dinner plate as his cutting board :/

Finished Pepper Products; he continually walks by to admire his work.

And I am at the kitchen table giving directions.....like this. Because as soon as he starting smashing garlic and bringing out pickling spices, I was done. BARF!

Hahahhaa! I love that he used a plate as his cutting board. That is such a man thing to do. Sorry the smells make you nauseous! But how great that he knows how to can now! Awesome!
