We are learning to can as a means to survive in the event of any number of collapse's. It's also a way to save money long term on food costs so we can better afford other things that are just as important for survival. Its better to know how and prep than to not know how and starve. Here are some pics of the experience. We would also welcome tips or advise.

Get a BIG bowl of butter, brown sugar and honey. What is in this bowel will only do 2 quart jars but its best to do it this way to keep the ratio of the mix right. By the way there is a lot more honey under the brown sugar.

The pot's of water are, front left - to "Blanche" the carrots, left rear - to fill the jars, front right - to can, right rear - to soften the lid seals.

Microwave the jars for a minute so they are not cold. Extreme temp changes could cause them to break. By the way this pic is from a different canning batch. No sense in taking up more online space than needed.

Fill the jars one at a time. Leave a small amount of space so the carrots can move while cooking.

Microwave the butter, brown sugar and honey to melt. Stop and stir often. Then pour 2 ladles of this yummy goodness in each quart size jar.

Fill your canners. Do not leave space's as they could move around and potentially break each other. If you have an empty space do what we do, put a jar of water as a filler. The filler jar can not be empty and must have a lid so it does not float and bounce around.

Close the lids but do not put the weight on yet. let it heat up till steam comes out for several minutes to push out the air.

After 25 minutes of cook time, turn off the heat and let them cool on their own. Do not open the lid, cooling to fast can make the water inside the jars come out.
Once there all cool you can store them or eat them. The jar up front is extra butter, brown sugar and honey mix. We canned it so it could be reused at a later time.
