Habitant Soup

Today was a good day.  I pressure canned 16 pint jars of Habitant soup.  Of course I used a tested and safe recipe from Bernardin/Ball.   I did the taste test before processing, and yes, it hit the mark, a great recipe!

These jars are still internally boiling.  You can see the thickness of the peas is on the bottom of the jars and the water is on the top.  This is actually a good thing.  I know now that it won’t be too thick nor too thin.  There’s a good mix of water to peas. As I continue to look at my jars, they are still boiling and as they cool the water is mixing nicely with the peas.  Perfect.

Now we can have home made pea soup any time we want.  It will be nice to open a jar on my bread baking days.  Fresh bread slathered in real butter and a hot bowl of Habitant soup.  Lunch anyone?
