First time canner!!

1470850773988My first timing canning was a success!!  My other half brought home two buckets of pears picked from a customers tree that they did not want!  I am the so lucky!!  I have been wanting to can anything for a long time.  I have had the jars and the know how but i guess the time just want right!  As soon as i got done canning i wanted to open them up right away to taste how they came out. But i will wait a while.  I cant wait until i get some more pears to can.  I feel so accomplished. Like a little squirrel hiding food for the winter for its family!.  It is a must try!  Thank you to the family who didn’t  want the pears!  And thank you for reading my little blog! Love and light.
