10 minute trick- canning labels

We recently visited my bud Tina and her husband Robert. Their canning closet is amazing… the jars of delectable preserves seemed to never end as they shared delight after delight with us. Savory, sweet, spicy, they had it all. We are going to have a little canned goods exchange, it’s going to be awesome.

I really love learning new things and I loved their way of labeling. Forget canning labels! They use painters tape. Guess what, it comes right off! So, this 10 minute trick is a real time saver. No more scrubbing sticky, gunky labels off those jars! Yippppppeee!

I’ll never do it any other way.

    I need the beans recipe. Mine didnt turn out last time. I plan to order some organic ones but need to fine tune the canning process. I did this WAYYYYY back in AK. Now cant recall.

      i soaked the beans, then filled them to 3/4 of the jar, added water to 1 inch headspace, 1/2 tsp salt and any seasoning i wanted (some plain some chipotle). pressure canned for 75 minutes on 10 lbs pressure.

  3. Those goodies look delicious. I’m a fan of painter’s tape. Another trick I use on jars that won’t get wet or spend time in the refrigerator is a wet-erase marker (from your elementary teacher’s overhead projector). By the time the jar is washed, the marker is gone. Anything that will get condensation, which happens in the refrigerator, will have marker running down the side.
