    Those starter kits tend to be over priced. If you watch at yard sales you can get a big huge pot with a lid pretty cheap... maybe even a canning pot. I buy my jars on discount or used... you really need something to keep the jars off the bottom of the pot... even one of those circular cake racks upside down on the bottom of the pot works. The pieces you really need are the canning funnel and the jar lifter and the wand with the magnet on the end to fish the lids out of the almost boiling water. Regular price on a kit that has that is about $15.
    There is a fair chance you already have the other items you need in your cabinets and you may be able to hold on until you can find a canning pot at a yard sale for cheap... LOL That is what I am doing. I do have my pressure canner and I am using that until I find the right deal. (my pressure canner came with the piece to keep the jars off the bottom so that part is easy. This fall I could have bought a pressure canner or a water bath canner... for me the choice was easy.

    BTW mom got her huge canning pot for $5 at a good will store.

    Ok today I over did it. 2 batches of peach pie filling... but because i dislocated my hip again yesterday and because i was doing it by myself... it ment i had to change the way it was getting it done. I got 2 big 5 gallon buckets and put some ice water in one... the other just some cold water and fruit fresh... i blanched all the peaches one after the other and put them right in the cold icy bath until all the peaches were in the bucket... then i sat down and pealed and cut them into slices right into the other bucket until all 14lbs were done. Then i made the pie filling (15 jars worth!) and i looked in the bucket where i had the peaches and it looked like peach juice... so i tasted it... and it was a bit week,,,, so i opened my freezer and pulled out a can of berry juice and a lime juice both .59 cents each and dumped them in and added a bit of sugar... presto chango it was peach punch... peach being the strongest flavor... i got 8 liters.. one more then the canner would hold so the canner is now on for the 4th time today. I spent $10.50 on peaches and $1.18 on frozen juice and for 11.68 I got 15 pie fillings and 8 liters of juice... not half bad! Just over .50 cents a jar. That is the difference between canning in season and paying store prices.

    I use a lot of recipes of a usa government website for canning. The first thing I do is watch a youtube vid or 3 on how to make it so i have a very good understanding then I look up the recipe and read it over to make sure i am about to do everything correctly. I have also used recipies out of the ball blue book. Ball and Bernardin are all under one big parent company.

    Cheekysaver has inspired me to get back into canning. I see that Walmart has the jars coming on sale on Friday for $5.97, but I am having a hard time finding Clear Gel. If anyone knows where to purchase Clear Gel in London / Sarnia / Goderich area please let me know. Thanks.

    I have heard that mennonite stores sell clear jel... last year we had so much trouble finding it and didn't know that ... so we got it online on amazon.ca <it needs the ca at the end. The shipping cost is killer online so i would try the mennonite stores first.

    As for the canning jars... pm them at canadian tire if it is in a flyer... or lowes... lowes will give you a extra 10% off... even if it is online... with canadian tire you take in the flyer and they will give you 10% of the lower price back in canadian tire money. Many stores clear out the jars in the next couple months so keep your eyes peeled.
