The reason I bring all of this up today you may ask? Wednesday was my first "canning" day of the season thus far and I canned 9 pints of pickled beets, my first attempt at doing beets. I'm pretty proud of the way they have turned out and found they were very easy to do compared to some other things I've canned in the past years. Granted, my dear sweet hubby was kind enough to boil and peel them for me beforehand..so that took alot of the hard part aside from my duties!! :-) Here are a few pictures of the process....

Have a very thankful thursday today!!
