you know..i did not know that, but I was on the "ball" web site and reading the recipe for this I did notice that it said NOT to boil the water...well, I did wash them, and I had them sitting in hot water..not boiling though, but very hot....hmmm, I really hope I didn't mess anything up.
There should be a warning..or something on the new-boxes that say not to boil them...maybe it does and I haven't paid-any attention to it..oh boy...
The larger jars/lids were older, but the smaller ones were the newest...Thank you for the heads-up Sharron! I really do appreciate it..will be making more applesauce today..

Look who's on the roost! Last night, I went in and gave them a bit of a push. They've been pooping up the nest boxes from sleeping in them so I went in and put mama and all the babies up on the roost. Tonight, she took them there on her own

I've had a cockatiel too, they've got nothing on a determined Grey. She can be a downright pain in the butt, but we love her. She is a rehomed animal too, so I'm sure some of her behavior is learned bad habits.
Homemade applesauce and garlic? Very tempting....
It was gorgeous today. They look so cute, glad they're coming around.
Door is always open Anne...hahaha

oh ..so sorry for them Barbie! Positive-thoughts go out to them.....I hope they stay safe!!
I just don't understand it...the businesses and people do not have anything to do with this craziness, why are they the one's that suffer...there are always some that make it horrible for everyone...do they even realize they are not only hurting themselves, maybe they just don't care......I hope things calm sooner rather than later for all.
