    What an awesome checklist! This would be great laminated so that for every canner load you could use a dry-erase or grease marker and tick off each point as you go through your batch. Thank you for so kindly making this free, Leisa!

      Excellent idea, Molly!

      Thank you for the checklist, Leisa! I just finished my 1s5t batch of ugly chicken!
      You are such a blessing and mentor to us all. Thank you for everything.
      Tomorrow I am trying canning ground beef and pork butt.
      I’m looking forward to trying your recipes. Cheers to you!

  2. Hi Leisa…I’ve been lurking for several weeks. I especially enjoy Monday Nights. My canning experience is making wine jelly, many years ago. About 6 month ago, I decided we needed more food on hand, since we now have 2 grands living with us. I’ve never seen a 4 year old eat almost as much food as her 17 year old brother!

    After calling Presto and being told not to can on the glass top, I bought a Presto induction canner. That led to the need for an induction burner (hot plate type) because. I took my canner to the Purdue Extension office to have the gauge checked. While I was there, they told me about a canning 101 class that was scheduled for the coming weekend. Of course, I signed up. We canned tomatoes and green beans.

    The instructor,also, told us about the Master Canning class coming up in spring 2024. I immediately thought of you. If you are interested, I can verify the dates and contact info.

    Thank you for all your hard work and your willingness to share your knowledge.
