Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.
I was feeling better but not quite ready to work at the quilting machine. I thought some canning would get me going again. I hadn’t been to the food bank so there wasn’t any produce to can. I was out of canned dry beans which I eat often. So, I canned a batch. When I took them out of the canner this is what I saw.
I was really puzzled. What happened? I stood staring at them for a few minutes before I realized I had used 1/4 cup beans instead of 1/2 cup per jar. They won’t go to waste. When I’m ready to use them in a recipe I’ll simply use two jars instead of one. I guess I wasn’t mentally ready to work after all.
Today I’ll process another batch and write a tutorial post about it.
