    Harbie lots and lots of people do water bath canning on glass top ranges without a problem. It is a risk for sure and only you can decide if you want to attempt it. Here is some info before you do. Don't ever drag the canner across the counter top. Lift it away. If you can't lift the weight do your standard turn it off for 5 mins and let the jars cool and remove the jars then carefully bail it out until the pot is light enough to move safely.

    Here are some ways I have seen water bath canning done on youtube. Misty Prepper (I think she is Mennonite so no electricity) she cans on a fire, bbq and a wood burning stove. Several people have canned on rocket stoves. Katzcradul cans on a glass top stove, both pressure canning and water bath. Some people can on turkey fryers too. Below I will put up a vid of Katzcrdul canning peaches on her glass top range.

    What happens if you break the glass? For a standard range a replacement is around 500.. for a fancier stove top it is around 1K or more. Only you can really decide the risk but breaking a glass top while canning does happen... just not often at all. A bbq is a valid way to get er dun!

    I like million dollar relish... it's a sweet mustard base, I just toss in whatever I have laying around (cucs, zuchinni, pepppers, onion pieces or pearl onion, and cauliflower).

    I have really horrible airflow in my kitchen and a glass top stove that I constantly worry about (but after 3 years of canning have yet to damage the top with a full American Standard pressure canner that holds 7 quart jars), so I bought a little 2 burner hotplate to try my canner on the patio I'd rather sit outside than make the house so humid.

    I just broke out my pressure canner to deal with the huge amount of tomatoes that burst due to a rainstorm last night. I hate skinning them so I froze them a little, and tossed them into the blender with some fresh basil and sage and onions/chives. I should get about 8 or 10L of tomato soup base.

    I won't be saving any money, but the jars of stuff look ( and taste) awesome! lol.
    So far from 3 boxes of tomatoes from RCSS I yielded

    16 x Litres of spaghetti sauce and
    13 x 500 ml salsa

    from 2 bags beets
    pickled 9 x 250 ml jars

    from approx. 2 lbs zucchini ( about 10 small ones )
    made 3 x 500 ml and one x 250 ml of zucchini relish

    next I am going to try my hand at making some peach jam, I bought 3 baskets of them!!

    also want to make some marmalade and some strawberry jams. Sigh no way to post pics yet.

    The Jam is done!!
    3 containers of strawberries ended up giving me 3 x 500 ml jars and 1/2 jar for the fridge
    10 cups of small diced up peaches gave me 6 x 500 ml and 3/4 of a jar for the fridge.

    I am sooo happy that I can make jam now using NO SUGAR!! I used a box of the " No sugar needed " Pectin, followed their specific instructions ( adding some unsweetened fruit juice/and or lemon juice, their powdered pectin, my own pure Stevia, just a scant amount ( NOT Truvia or other fake ones) to take the tart taste off each.
    Tomorrow I will tackle marmalade, after I search out some You Tube videos, I love watching other people, often it gives me courage to dive right in and try!

    Love everyone's creations. This year I am keeping it simple. Tomatoes tomatoes tomatoes , I invested in a machine to skin and seed them what a lifesaver it took so little time to do the 6 bushels it was laughable. I am going to do about 6 more bushels then move on to beets.

    My shiney new machine, covered it to not splash juice on it SO far 69 liters done I will probably get another 35 out of the remaining sauce I have to cook and jar up today.

    Patty^^^^ I love it! ( I will dream I have one, I know I could not justify buying one, but the TIME you saved!! woot! woot!).
    I am probably going to get more tomatoes today and start again as the sauce I did up turned out very good. Sadly I only yeilded 16 Litres of sauce as I used some of the tomatoes to jar up salsa. Mmmm. Nice going with the amounts you have done already!!

    This thread could get me in a lot of trouble. I have already picked out a pressure canner I want and now more gadgets, yep this thread could get this girl in a lot of trouble.

    So far I only dehydrate things, canning scares me a bit but my Mom cans. So far this year she has done Cherry Jam, Tomato Jam, Pizza Sauce and is currently working on Raspberry Jelly (raspberries are straining in the kitchen).

    It was pricey it retails for $599 I got it for $439 but I do NOT regret it. At first I was freaking out and trying to justify it but no longer . Should have bought one years ago.

    By the way DH dehydrated the tomato skins seeds and core and we got 1.5 liters of tomato powder so apart from 3 rotten ones and a few bad chunks i cut off there was zero waste.

    This is the one I got

    It was worth the price for the .5 HP and the splash guard is a lifesaver
