July 18: The Pressure is On (15 PSI) !
FISH ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Catch of the day! Three to go, if you please. Rumors started about increasing limit to 6 pretty soon.
Neighbor Bob is at it bright and early, but not as early as Jerry was: 4:00 AM PLay that fish, don’t rush him.
This man has the technique mastered. Notice the fish cleaning board that I came up with.
With the help of our neighbors Paul and Shirley, and the use of their equipment, we will try our hand at canning salmon.
The first step is to cut the salmon into approximately 1 inch cubes.
This is the total amount of salmon that we are going to can today. I would guess that this about 10 or 11 pounds.
We went to Safeway to buy the canning jars. We decided to go with the pint size. The procedure for preparing the salmon was not as complicated as I had thought it might be.The jars must stay in the canner for 100 minutes at 15lbs. of pressure per square inch of pressure.
This is the finished product.
Special of the Day: Shirley’s Famous Salmon Dip while you wait for the processing to finish. WHAT A LIFE!!
