The Amazing Tilia
So I can actually "can" a mean green
bean and jellies in my late mother-in-law's canning pot that she
gave me right before her passing (see story in Tales from the Holler:
Taking back my country
by Canning BUSH beans ). Now, canning the old fashioned way
is fun, but I'm still a wee bit nervous about it. So far we haven't
died from botulism, but sometimes I'm just more wary of my canning
skills than others. That's when we discovered another 8th wonder
of the world...THE TILIA. This thing really sucks. And sucks quite
well I might add.
We use the Tilia Pro package (see company description
This top-of-the-line machine has a wide range of
features, yet as simple to use as pushing a button. The FoodSaver
Professional III, upgraded with new advanced features such as the
under the lid hose storage and the easy to clean antibacterial drip
tray, is the best home vacuum packaging system on the market today.
One-Touch operation vacuums and seals automatically. Choose from
five settings for the desired sealing time. You can also stop the
vacuum process at any time to control the amount of air being removed
which allows you to vacuum package delicate foods. It???s the FoodSaver
the real kitchen pros use. Vacuums, seals and shuts off automatically.
Last summer we grew over 40 tomato plants, why?
Cause we love tomatoes and we could. All of those plants produced
over 25 gallons of our homemade spaghetti sauce which we then placed
in Tilia bags vaccum sealed them, threw them in the freezer and
stored up enough sauce for almost 50 meals. Last week we used our
final bag. Got us through winter, was completely pesticide free
and we saved mucho dinero. EVERYONE should have a Tilia.
