Well, I thought I’d take a walk about photo shoot since I hadn’t had much time to post around here, but then I thought for a bit about what has not been seen for a while.. The canning room, with all the bounty from the harvests.
So I thought I’d take a moment to not only snap pictures of what all I have, but to also take a tally.
This is an INCOMPLETE TALLY since it only counts the shelves and wall. It does not count the 10 dozen or so half pint jelly jars full of stuff that I did not count in yet.
So… Lets begin shall we?
Tomato Juice: 18 quarts
Cherry Tomato Pickles: 20 pints
Bread & Butter Pickles: 4 quarts
Basil Tomatoes: 24 quarts
Chili – No beans, meat: 6 quarts, 1 pint
Canned Pears: 12 quarts
Apple Sauce: 51 quarts
Apple Pie: 9 quarts
Persimmon Juice: 11 quarts
Strawberry Raspberry: 1 pint
Orange Marmalade: 4 pints
Chocolate Mint: 4 half pints, 1 pint
Mint: 5 half pints, 2 pints
Persimmon: 3 half pints, 3 pints
Blueberry: 6 pints
Pear Jam: 7 half pints
Fig: 1 half pint, 3 pints
Pear Jelly: 7 half pints
Lemon Jelly: 5 half pints
Blueberry Persimmon: 3 half pints, 3 pints
Apple Butter: 3 pints
Black Cherry: 4 half pints
Apple Jelly: 1 half pint, 4 pints
Strawberry Jam: 8 half pints
Mixed Berry Jam: 2 half pints, 5 pints
Blueberry Pomegranate: 1 half pint, 4 pints
Blackberry: 2 half pints, 4 pints
And the totals are…
Quarts: 135——33.75 gallons
Pints: 64————8 gallons
Half Pints: 53—- 3.3125 gallons
... Again this does not count some odd 10 dozen half pint jellies in storage on the low shelf. Those are already on the wall full, so they’re stored low till needed.
All together, that’s 45 gallons of canned “stuff”... or aprox 51 gallons if you estimate in those I had not counted..
I think we canned alot of stuff… Don’t you?
