When I’m canning, I try to remember to add vinegar to the water in the canner, especially if I’m using water from the outside water hose instead of filtered, softened water from inside.
Yesterday, I forgot to add vinegar to the water. Can you see the powdery residue on the jars and the rings from the water? That is why I cannot grow a garden here . . the water is way too basic. We don’t get enough rain – we hardly get any rain in the summer, so our only option is well water.
