Canning Factory
Any day at the canning factory is always a great day! This is my happy place.

Purple Pod Beans

Purple pod beans are amazing! They are deep purple when picked off the vine. When you cook them and as the water gets hotter, their color turns green. I think the single bean in the top left picture is interesting. It is totally opposite from all of the other beans. It has a green exterior and purple interior.


Dehydrated Apples and Zucchini

There are hundreds of varieties of apples in Virginia. Our dehydrator is running non-stop to dry apples in the fall. Have you ever dehydrated zucchini? Both apples and zucchini make a nutrious, delicious, low calorie snack. We process them with the skins on for added nutrition.
