Marcia Morrison replied to Mark Norton's discussion Our Magic Mountains in the group Veggie Gardens
"I'm not sure I can be much help. I haven't had any late blight since 2009 when I was one of the last to get hit. I think part of my experience is due to the fact that I'm in a suburban area without many tomato/potato growers nearby. I…"

Marcia Morrison replied to Jen and Sam's discussion boiling water bath water in a pressure canner? in the group Canning
"If I understood the original question and the job is getting water to boil before the cows come home, a pressure canner without pressure won't solve the problem described even if it's construction is more heat conductive. If the heat…"

Marcia Morrison replied to Jen and Sam's discussion boiling water bath water in a pressure canner? in the group Canning
"Lordy, if it took me that long to boil water I'd never can a thing. And I hate to think how difficult it is to bring the water back to boil after you put the jars in and how effectively you're maintaining the boil. Instead of investing in…"

Marcia Morrison replied to Jen and Sam's discussion boiling water bath water in a pressure canner? in the group Canning
"No, no, no. Even if it did 'speed up' the boiling of the water it wouldn't do you any good because you can't open the canner until it cools down again.  "

Marcia Morrison replied to Sasha K-R's discussion plums leaking in the group Canning
"In my experience some liquid often escapes with the air during canning especially if all the air pockets haven't been purged or the food generates more during processing. The point of course is for air to be expelled so a vacuum is created when…"

Marcia Morrison replied to Kelly Dietz's discussion Please advise...peaches are bubbling, some leaking in the group Canning
"Kelly, I see more bubbles in my very ripe late season Lorings but after they sit for a week or so the bubbles break down so I wouldn't worry so much about them. If you're sure you're seeing more bubbles being generated I have no idea…"

Nutritional Values

Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone here has tried to work out nutritional values for any of the cheese they've made and if so how. I've been trying to crunch the numbers for fromage blanc from whole milk by subtracting the values I found for acid whey and they seem to be fairly close to those I've found for similar cheeses but I still wonder.calories/grams fat/grams protein/grams carbohydrate1 gallon whole milk: 2346/127/126/205.5minus 6.5 lbs. acid whey: 710/3/22.5/1502 lbs. cheese:…See More

Marcia Morrison replied to Katie Quinn-Jacobs's discussion Your favorite canning recipe book... in the group Canning
"Well shoot. I was hoping to see lots of ideas here because while I have plenty of good recipes, they're from umpteen different sources: my grandmother's recipe file, my mother's, old cookbooks like Fanny Farmer's and The Joy of…"

Marcia Morrison replied to Marcia Morrison's discussion BPA-free reusable lids in the group Canning
"I've never seen any sign of them locally. I ordered from the website above. I don't know where the Bartons found theirs or where Katie got the ones they used on the chili. I don't understand why they aren't more widely available.…"

"I'm sorry, I may have missed this, but did you buy the Tattler lids locally Marcia? or online?"

Marcia Morrison replied to Marcia Morrison's discussion BPA-free reusable lids in the group Canning
"Oh I will, I will. I won't be canning again until next week. I can hardly wait but I'm really glad I wasn't planning to do it this week; I have a mess to clean up in the cellar after yesterday's monsoon!"

"Marcia, if you have the chance, let us know how your Tattler lidded tomato canning goes."
