Re: Life Disruptions

Sorry to hear that Dakota. These kinds of things just seem to happen when everything else is going on at the same time. Stay safe and well yourself.

Re: No shortages?

Went to the closest Costco to us this past Sunday to get a few things, one of which was a small freezer if they had one. They had one 5 cubic foot and about 10 or so 3.5 cu. ft. ones.

There's a small Victorio grain mill on amazon and Walmart for $138 and change. So that is somewhat cheaper than the Kitchenaid one. I have that style and it works very well. It is a hand crank one.

I have also seen them at Peavey Mart, but hard to say if they always have them in stock.

Re: Pressure canners

Water bath canning is mainly used for pickles, jams, jellies and tomatoes in most forms. Pressure canning is for veggies, soups, etc. For info on the canning, a good book is Bernardin Complete Book of Home Preserving. It has everything in there. It is $27.26 on amazon.

Re: Is It Over Yet?

Have noticed more masks in our area as well. Of interest though, while at the farmers market, have noticed alot of people who work in the local hospital and whatnot are not wearing masks while out and about. On the whole though, even though it can be quite busy, people are generally observing the so...

Re: Pressure canners

That looks like it was probably used for water bath canning and yes you can use those jars.
