Who keeps these records? And why? And is there really a permanent record anywhere? And did all of those transgressions of my youth really go on my permanent record? There were threats to that effect!
Oops. I got off the track for a bit there.
The record I'm talking about is the one I keep to let me know how much produce or meat equals how many pint jars full when canned. I found that 25 lbs. of carrots, some sliced and some diced, equals 32 pints and 24 half-pints. Or 44 pints. I can a number of vegetables and meats in half-pint jars simply because that is a good amount for one person - which I am.
So the last canner load of carrots is heating up. Then it is on to the 15 lbs. of hamburger. The excitement builds. (Insert snarky grin here, because canning 25 lbs. of carrots and 15 lbs. of hamburger really is the most exciting thing going on in my life at the moment.) Sigh.
