A friend asked/challenged her fellow home-canners to share what our canning goals are so here I am to share :)
I will admit up-front that my goals may not be spot on for us. I haven't done much canning in the last 4-5 years so I'm not completely sure what we will use in a year.
The smaller # in a range is what I think we will need for 1 year, the large would be a guess at 2 years worth. It pays to be prepared and you never know what will happen to a garden next year.
Sweet corn (freezer) GOAL: 52-104 3 cup bags
DONE: 101 3 cup bags
Green beans (canned) GOAL: 52 quart jars (that is a 2 year estimate for us as we don't eat beans every week)
DONE: 57 quarts
Salsa (canned): GOAL: 12-24 pints
DONE: 30 pints
Spaghetti Sauce (canned): GOAL: 12-24 quarts
DONE: 7 quarts but we had one for lunch today
Tomato Puree (canned - I use this like juice): GOAL: 12-24 quarts
DONE: 2 quarts
Tomato Sauce (canned): GOAL: 12-24 pints
Diced Tomatoes (canned): GOAL: 12-24 pints
Pizza Sauce (canned): GOAL: 12-24 pints
Okra (frozen): GOAL: 2 gallons
DONE: 2 quarts
Jellies/Jams: There is no goal. I make as much of these as humanly possible both for our consumption and to give as gifts. I have no idea how much I have made because I just store it and keep going. lol
Shredded Zucchini (frozen): GOAL: 24 bags
DONE: 64 bags (I just kept shredding as I can substitute it for hash browns
Pickles (canned): GOAL: 12-24 quarts
DONE: I have absolutely no idea. I think that I have 60 quarts and 40 some pints.
Pickle relish (canned): GOAL: 6 half pints
DONE: 0 but I still have some left from last year
Rotel (canned): GOAL: 6-12 half pints
Apple pie filling (canned): GOAL: 12 quarts
Fruit: I would put up as much fruit as I can get my hands on but it is expensive and I don't have any growing here. I will do some apple butter, applesauce and pumpkin butter. And can some pumpkin. I am also going to dehydrate some watermelon and canteloup when it is ready.
We will have a calf in our freezer very soon and a pig or 2 in a few months. We have 57 chickens now :) Plus pheasants, guineas, a turkey and ducks. And hopefully someone or another in this house will get a deer. We are very blessed. In a few weeks we will dig our potatoes, onions and sweet potatoes for storage :) I've been picking mint. Hopefully next year my herbs will do better.
