Me, being domestic.

Me, and my non-domestic self is trying really hard to actually be domestic. On my quest to do so I have met a really neat friend who bottles just about everything! You name it she's done it.

Tuesday lesson.... bottled potatoes! {I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to} I didn't realize how easy it was to bottle things in the pressure cooker.... I'm so wanting one now!
Step 1) Peel the potatoes {easy enough}
Step 2) Cut up and put in water bath
Step 3) Put cut potatoes into washed mason jars. {I used the wide mouth jars} Fill with hot water, and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Wipe mouths, and put lids on.
{That's it.... done with the hard part!}
Step 4) Put into pressure cooker and from there.... follow the directions in the instruction manual to the pressure cooker.
And about 2 hours later it's done!
When you are ready to use the potatoes just open and drain the water. You can then use the potatoes for salads, stews, mashed.... anyway that you would use peeled potatoes....
.... 10 pounds of Russet potatoes made 7 quart jars full....

Awesome! I haven't done potatoes, but that sounds like a good idea. I have only done chicken in the pressure canner, and steam canned a bunch of fruit. Don't you just feel like you you accomplished so much when you see all your jars there cooling on the counter? Good job!
