I Hit The Mother Load  

Posted by Johnny

As I began to start canning this year I realized that I would not have nearly enough jars to do what I had planned on doing. So, I started asking around to see if anyone had canning jars they were not using anymore. Well, my aunt told me she had given all of hers away years ago. So I started scouring garage sales and came up with about 24. Not so great! So I did buy some at Kroger and Rural King. I still was not happy with the amount I had.

Well, I then started talking with my cousin and he informed me that his mom had left some in her house that she sold to the hospital. What? She told me she gave all of those away! Come to find out after making several phone calls to the hospital she had indeed left several boxes of jars in her basement and the hospital was more than willing to let me come and pick them up. My aunt had simply forgot about them...

So here are some pictures of the many, many cans that recovered from her basement. I have already washed 4 cases of the quart size and there are many, many more. I will update you to the total when I finish washing them.

Too cool Johnny! It is expensive to buy all those jars.
