    I opened a jar of the Sweet Summer Squash Chow Chow (post #950) this past week. Hmm... it is VERY sweet and VERY peppery. I'm not sure I love this combination. If I made it again, I would use a fraction of the pepper and use dry chili flakes instead. I'm not sure how that would effect the pH/safety of the recipe, though. I would also use a combination of yellow squash and green zucchini; I just think it would look nicer.

    I don't eat a lot of jam in general, but really like the Carrot Cake Jam (post #951). I'm hopeful that the postal strike will end soon, as I have some packaged up and ready to ship to family in NS. Definitely would make it again.

    The Confetti Relish (#949) turned out well - tasty, but lots of chopping by hand to get the confetti look in the jar. The Cucumber (or Zucchini!) Relish (post #845) is my favourite. I used a food processor to make it now instead of hand chopping. Forget hot sauce, I put THIS "stuff" on everything!

    it is so awesome when you love what you canned but sucks when you put in a bunch of effort and donít like it. Most things I like but I made lemon garlic green beans and glazed carrots last year...hated them both.

    for chopping look into a vidalia chop wizard at bed bath and beyond. Works great for lots of chopping!

    still have 10 lbs of beets to pressure can. It wasnít a good canning season for me with my dog being diagnosed with lymphoma early August. It was very time consuming helping him and then losing him a little more than 3 weeks ago. We are still devastated by his loss.

    So sorry @scouponer for the loss of your fur baby. I have a dog of my own and know we treat them like our child.

    @scouponer

    So very sorry to read about your loss. I know how very hard it is, one of our cats died at the beginning of the year.

    For those of you with a presto pressure canner with the gauge...I called presto in the US to order some parts. Needed a new sealing ring and new rubber ring for the pressure gauge and presto is the only place where you can get the washers and rubber ring...$2.50 as opposed to buying a new pressure gauge for $30. Anyways they offered me a free jiggler because we have no place in Canada to have our pressure gauges checked to see if they are accurate. I have one already that I ordered from amazon a couple of years ago, but didnít mention as I can always have another one on hand in case it gets lost. I love the jiggler, makes it so you can take your eyes off the canner as you can tell by sound of you are at proper pressure. Anyways you could always try calling to get one for free.

    Please excuse my juvenile frame of mind @scouponer but as I read the words " free jiggler " in your perfectly serious normal post about cooking I just started laughing! It became worse when you followed up with your love for the jiggler.
    That being said I am happy you got such decent CS from Presto.
    o.k. I will now go sit in the Time Out chair.
