I spent my Sunday afternoon canning green beans. I had one pressure canner full. And I made a dilly pickled bean recipe too. So I had both the hot water canner and pressure canner going at the same time. And I had both kids home at the time…..and they were not napping. The only incident we had during this time was 3/4 of a toilet paper roll was stuffed into the toilet. Other than that they just ran around while I was dicing beans and pouring boiling hot water.
