    Hi! It would be super awesome if you could share more of your technique, and a picture of the finished product here. It's great to include links back to your site, but I think you might get more response if you can share more with us here!

    Thanks for your comments, Scoochmaroo!

    I have posted this instructable as a "recipe" under "photo" and not under "step by step" with multiple photos-- as I have with all of my instructables.

    In this instructable I am not offering the technique of "how to can", I am only offering the recipe-- mainly because I am still learning the technique of canning myself.

    I sure appreciate your feedback! When there there is a step-by-step instructable that I have to post, I will take your feedback into consideration and include more photos.

    At this time, this is what I am able to do.

    Have a wonderful day!
