Green Beans

I canned, in a pressure canner, and did not blow anything up! I had enough green beans to process 7 quarts (a canner full) so I gave it a try last night. Boy was I nervous, so I waited until the girls were in bed and safe.
Here's the canner at work. It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Just follow the directions and keep an eye on the pressure.

Here is the end result. Only six of the jars sealed so we will just have the unsealed jar for dinner one night this week. I probably have another 7 quarts to snap and can so I may do that tonight, it only took about an hour and a half (not including snapping the beans) from start to finish.
