Do you know how many grams of sugar are in a can of soda?! Many contain around 40 grams! Of course, that doesn’t really mean much to the average consumer who is unaware that every 4 grams equals nearly 1 teaspooon of sugar! Yep, that’s right! About TEN TEASPOONS of sugar in most cans of soda! Yikes!
Today marks an important milestone in my life, and I feel it’s appropriate to share it with all of my loyal readers. I conquered a personal fear today – – pressure canning alone!
To some of you this will sound silly, I know. And others of you will understand exactly where I’m coming from – a place of fear of things exploding. LOL!
After more than half a dozen canning experiences with my good buddy, Chad…I finally ventured out on my own today to can 4 jars of smoked chicken broth and 1 jar of green beans from the garden.
I’m pleased to share the following results:
- Nothing exploded
- Everthing sealed properly
- No one got burned
- I beamed with pride 😉
