    Just the apples when they are ready here. More than likely will just freeze them. Baggies and the freezer are easy for fried apples.

    i've often wondered who the hell REALLY eats beats. YUK.


    I have no idea how to can anything. I think it has something to do with a pressure cooker but Id rather cook with mine than pretend it's 1846.

    Canning? Yep. I'm sitting on my can!!! (I know, very little humor.) Our garden is nowhere near ready yet because of the difference in growing seasons. Besides, with all the rain we've had there isn't going to be much of a bounty. I will, however, be right over for some of those pickled beets!!! Very yummy...

    Oh, no, you're wrong. Beets are really good - especially the pickled ones! I like them cold (out of the fridge). Another really great thing about beets is that it turns baby's poop a nice purple color!!!:lol:

    I hear ya.. and more power to you. I guess i'd have responded different if you were canning peppers or tomatoes rather than... BEETS.
