Canning Mixed Vegetables

Mixed Vegetables

When I got home from work today my DH had picked the tomatoes and the green beans.  While I dipped the tomatoes and got those all ready to go he cubed the zucchini, chopped the onion and cut the green beans to size..
GREAT help!!!

We will do this now through the remainder of the season.  A canner at a time through the week after work  and then  I can handle more on the weekend..

My mix above is:
green beans
zucchini, cubed
onion, chopped
2 tablespoons salt
bring to a boil for 5 minutes
put in your hot jars, 1" head-space
PRESSURE CAN for 90 minutes (quarts)

How do I? ...Can Vegetables
