Putting up on a snowy January day
It's Wednesday morning. The sky is cloudy, overcast grey. There has been a light snowfall for the past 24 hours with the promise of more for the next day. All the Christmas decorations have been put away and the homestead has slid into winter hunkering down. I'm not planning on leaving the house, so I'm thinking it's a good day to pressure can potatoes. I have a 50lb bag of Pryputniewicz Farms potatoes in the fruit cellar, and another 20 lbs of culls that are starting to spout...so I better put them up before they are unusable. My 1st batch is 9 widemouth pints. Just the thing for a quick breakfast of fried potatoes.
