Looks like Meryl from My Bit of Earth has been making her own chai blend. It’s such a good drink for these chilly winter days.

Under Pressure

I think we’ve all been there, in the kitchen late at night, finishing off a canning project. This photo from Sharon evokes that moment and mood perfectly.

    Going have to make the Red Pepper Jelly as our son-in-law will love it.
    I do have a hard time finding the certo liquid pectin tho.

    I do have a question. Noticed in the picture above that canned goods are stacked on top of each other.
    Years ago when my mother canned she always told me that you shouldn’t stack canned jars on top of one another. Is it ok to stack or not to stack?
    thank you

      ColleenB… We don’t store them stacked all the time it was really only for this picture, just made it look better, We use this cabinet for one of everything, it’s in our kitchen and and the rest are stored on spice racks on shelves in a closet! We just refill with a new jar when we use it. It hleps us know when we are almost out.

      My mother did stack, usually jars smaller than quarts. I’ve done the same 30 years and never had a problem, other than some jars just don’t balance well. I prefer wide mouth jars for stacking.

    I always save the box that the jars came in and put them back in filled with whatever I had made. I keep them in the basement and always put a not on the top to help me to know what kind of , for example, pickles are in the box. This has worked for me for many, many years.
