Official results on how many jars sealed will be tallied tomorrow. I am anxiously *ahem* excitedly waiting the 24 hours it takes for them to cool and seal. Based on the pings I heard after pulling them from the hot water bath, my very first canning session is a success. I just bought myself some shelf life!
I was kinda put on the spot to try hot water bath canning. I ran out of my last case of Southside Mike’s BBQ sauce. He doesn’t have any bottled, so there’s no way I’m gonna say no to a gallon jug of this delicious dark brown glassy spice infused gold!
“I’ll just can it,” I told myself when I made the order. The jug arrived at the perfect time. My ribs came out great! Now I gotta get that gallon canned… I’ve never canned anything before… until now!
