I bought a case of 40 lbs of green beans from Bountiful Baskets this week. Call me nuts, but green beans are SO good…and the thought of not having to buy them all winter made me happy. So I went for it. I had NO idea how many beans 40 pounds really was.
Thankfully, two of my amazing friends who volunteer at Bountiful Baskets with me on Saturdays wanted to come over to help. Hooray! Many hands sure made light work! It would have taken me SOO much longer to do it all by myself. We started at 9am and I just pulled the last of the jars out of the canner right now…at 3:30. And we had 2 canners going!
