  2. @QueensCabinet – No, I’d never heard of it. We’re quite sheltered here in a
    small town in OK. But will check into it. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks for the information. I was considering canning butter, but hadn’t
    gotten to it yet. I’m looking forward to your video. thanks for the up date
    on the milk too. It would be nice to have smaller portions of liquid milk

  5. Katzcradle and BexarPrepper are both channels I enjoy watching as well…
    thanks for your encouraging words and support. Glad you liked the video.

  6. I loved the way you presented your video – well done! I was just watching
    the video Katzcradul did regarding botulism and the mystique surrounding it
    in home canned goods (as well as store bought – specifically fruits and
    other low acid foods) and between the two of you (oh wait – three because I
    can’t forget BexarPrepper!) I just feel so much more confident about
    continuing on with my canning (I am well past jam at this point) Thank you
    so much for sharing! – Ruby

  7. I live in the Houston area; don’t you find your garage is too hot to store
    your food? I have a huge garage but I’ve been reluctant to put anything but
    whole grain buckets in the hot garage.

  8. Another great video – so helpful! I especially love all the tips about what
    signs to look for in the canned jars to know if they are unsafe to use. I
    am wondering, though, like another commenter, how you are able to store
    your cans in the garage when the temps get so high in the warmer months.
    Aren’t you supposed to keep canned goods at 75 or below, and are you at all
    concerned about that? Keep making the great videos! ~Karen :)

  11. I drink a smoothie or protein shake most mornings and milky coffee every
    morning, in fact, I put two big spoonfuls of instant in my cappuccino
    smoothies… so, running out of milk or having the milk go bad is
    devastating! Canning milk would be so perfect! Also, great for portion
    control. At 5’2″ I can not afford to shrink and I need my daily calcium!
    :-) My husband is allergic to dairy, I might just try canning some soy milk
    for him!

  15. So glad to see you back on YouTube! These were some of my concerns too,
    especially with canning butter. I saw Katzcradul’s method as well and
    thought- well duh! That’s how I should be doing this! Keep up the great

  16. Good to see you back!!! Your videos are GREAT and WELL RESEARCHED before

  17. theprepperswife… videos are great but it seems everyone uses pints and
    quarts, I have bought some half gallon jars but the only thing I see to use
    them for is juices?? What I intended to do was put chili and veg. soup in
    them and pressure can it!! Any suggestions on the pounds and pressure
    cooking of these?? All souces say they have no testing on these for the 240
    temp. in the center to kill all the bad stuff!!

  18. And just ‘cuz one jar or one batch processed successfully, don’t relax your
    vigilance for the next batch or the next jar. Canning can be dangerous
    EVERY TIME, so you have to be smarter than it is every time. This means
    being aware with the boiling water you heat your lids in to the paper towel
    you wipe your jar rims with. Remain aware of your actions throughout the
    ENTIRE PROCESS. Thanks for the heads up.

  19. as you your more likely to get botulism from veg than milk to be honest but
    if you pressure canning at temps over 250 degrees or more you pretty safe
    as you killed the spores at that temp

  23. Isn’t it funny how we have so much concern over our own canned foods, but
    don’t think twice about factory canned foods. Great information! Thank you.

  24. Thanks for all your tips. Sure miss seeing your videos. It’s good to see
