Dh and I made Bean Soup tonight, canned up 14 quarts to be exact. I'm anxious for it to be done as I hear something cracking inside of the canner and I'm worried one of the jars has broke, this could be interesting. One third cup of beans in the bottom of the jars.
A mix of red beans and kidney beans - I mixed together one pound of each type in a large bowl.
I chopped up two larger onions, they were the size of a large orange.
Place a handful of chopped onion on top of the beans - about a half cups worth.
Cubed pork butt roast and juice.
One half cup of cubed pork plus a little bit extra to make a hearty soup.
Pork, onions, beans , now the jars are ready for the broth.
Plenty of pork juice/broth left over to top off the pork and beans - added flavor.
Jars topped off with broth water mixture the yellowis color is from the ham broth concentrate we added to the jars.
The jars are filled, cleaned, and the lids put in place and are ready to be pressured canned - 10 pounds of pressure for 90 minutes.
