New Canner and Homemade Deodorant


This is my new canner.  I stopped at a yard sale a few weeks ago and the lady had this canner for sale.  One of the handles was missing so she sold it to me for $5.00.  Yesterday, I stopped at Farmers Supply here in Floyd to see if they could order  new handles.  I had no idea if they could or not as the canner appears to be old.  Well, they could and they only cost me $8.00.  I then went to the extension office and had them calibrate the guage.  It was off 1 and 1/2 pounds so I thought I probably should get a new guage too.  This cost $l8.00.  Amazing.  These parts will be in by Friday.  So for roughly $30.00 I got a new canner.  This one is much taller than my other ones.  It will hold 1/2 gallon jars which I plan to use for our juice that we can.

Then we went on over to Vicki’s and had a great visit.  We ate lunch together and then Vicki and I made homemade deodorant.


We used tea tree oil in the solid deodorant and lavender in the powder.  I really like it.  It smells so fresh and clean.  I am impressed.  I definitely will be making it again.

Today the girls and I are making spaghetti sauce.  This will be our last batch of spaghetti sauce.  I think the rest of the tomatoes will just be used to make tomato juice.  Our tomatoes are doing very well this year.  I think this isthe best ours have done in a long time.

I better go stir the spaghetti sauce as I do not have Mrs. Sally’s good kettle any longer.  I took it back to her Sunday.   Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. I can’t wait to get the powder puff for the powdered deodorant. 🙂 We have never gotten tomatoes here, but this year we have too many. I thought about just not picking anymore, but I just brought in 4 gallons(ice cream buckets) over flowing with tomatoes. I am going to tidy up the house and fold clothes then start canning them. There are tons more to pick and even green ones still. I am going to make tomato juice too. We use tomato juice in our vegetable soup.

  2. What a great deal you got onthe canner. It looks a lot like mine. U hope your spaghetti sauce turned out good. Sounds yummy. You should post your recipe.
    Have a great day.

  3. That looks like a nice canner. I love it when you can replace some parts and get a good canner.

    Have a wonderful evening with your family.
