I love this post! Thanks so much for sharing your experiences. Just this weekend, I was looking into canning supplies. It's nice to hear from another first-timer.

I will be sure to taste my creations before giving them away. Thanks for that tip. Also, I found my grandmother's old canning book over the weekend. In the troubleshooting section, it addressed floating veggies. I don't know what it said, but I assume there must have been a solution ... or at least a reason. Maybe you could find help for that online somewhere? Wish I knew what it said.

Anyway, thanks again!

Thanks for this post and for Tweeting it! Home canning has really been on my mind a lot. Aside from a single highly-sugared batch of pumpkin butter from a couple of years ago, this has been my first year really canning anything in quantity, and certainly my first time using a pressure canner.

How brave of you to show your kitchen! Mine looks "uncannily" similar (ha! couldn't resist) with jars, pressure canner, a pot to warm lids, a pot to warm jars (no dishwasher), and one or two pots cooking whatever is going to be canned, plus colanders, kitchen towels, cooling racks, measuring cups, and various utensils.

I am learning alot and enjoying what I've put by. Funny thing, canning is starting to feel habit forming.
