  1. My canner actually has both the weight and a gauge. I went with 15 lbs. so all is good (I posted a pic above). Thank you so much for your help!!!
  2. Ok, well, for the first time ever, I canned meat I probably cooked up around 7 lbs of venison and made taco meat. Vat O Meat Ended up with seven pints. Had one failure. Sigh. But, that's ok.
  3. This question keeps haunting me and no matter how or what I google I can't find the answer. I am at 1,390 feet....do I use 15 lbs? Other people that I read about in Kansas use 10 lbs. Edited to add that I used 15 lbs to be safe.
  4. Thank you so much, Andie! For us, I don't think we will never know any further info on ours. They could have been done by my great gramma or my grammy. There are no dates or other markings on the back. My grandpa doesn't remember anything about them. Sigh. One of the many things that come up that I wish I could have asked my grammy. I will be interested to hear what Rob's family says about theirs.
  5. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Squash bugs are the epitome of evil.
  6. beautiful!! This is on my list to make in a few days. Do you feel it would hold in the fridge for a couple of days or is it best to eat the same day it's made?
  7. Oh how great! Congratulations @Mmmpomps!!!!
  8. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Been busy around here doing fall cleaning, getting ready for our hunter dealing with some late produce from the garden etc. A couple of quick meals this week. Spaghetti red And roast beef sandwiches
  9. Yeah, chiggers suck. Are you finding that there are more things to forage where you're living now, or just different things? Have you been able to find cattails? We need @andiesenji to take a look at the plates--if anyone knows, she will
  10. Awwwww, Love love love Lexi girl. And, as usual, you have impressed me to no end. Acorns...mushrooms and especially the salt.
  11. My mom ran over to the house and took a picture...they are the same , but different, but the same. My Grammy has passed away...I would LOVE to ask her about these. My Grandpa is still with us but I dunno if he will know....Mom will ask him. Now I'm even more curious. Sorry if I'm derailing your thread. We can take this to PM's if you want
  12. Really! Very interesting! I sent the picture to my mom and she says that when she was growing up (and me as well) my Grammy (her mom) had similar ones only they were yellow. She's offered to take a picture (she sees them in a cupboard when she goes over to the house) so when she does I'll post it. Maybe they are not even remotely the same, but my memory thinks they are similar and so does my mom. I love mysteries like this
  13. These plates have triggered a LONG lost memory for me but I can't put my finger on it. I've seen them before--but different names. Loving this . LOVE the cabin.
