For lunch today I fried some bacon, potatoes and scrambled eggs. The bacon and potatoes were from the pantry that I had canned and eggs were from our girls and just laid yesterday. Brandon loves bacon and since he was such a good help to me canning today I made his favorite meal.
This is the recipe I used today when canning the beets, I got it from my sister-in-law Gale back in the 70s:
2 c sugar
2 c water
2 c vinegar
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ground cloves
1 TBSP cinnamon
Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer 15 minutes. Pour this over hot beets that are in hot jars and process boiling water bath for 30 minutes. This is enough to makes about 8 pints.
