I tried something new today, dehydrating. I had three quarts of beans cleaned and bagged, with no room in the freezer and no desire to can. It was way too hot today for canning. I haven't dehydrated anything since the '70s, and I only attempted fruit back then.
My three quarts of beans are now shriveled down to about a pint and are safely stored away. I'll try some soup or stew next week to see if we like rehydrated beans!
While the dehydrator was doing its thing, I had time to go through some boxes, and I had time to tat!
I've been asked about the difference in size with the different threads. The blue Spinning Wheel is size 80 Lizbeth. It's about 3 1/2". The yellow Snowflake Cappuccino is size 20 Lizbeth and is about 4 3/4". The green Spinning wheel is size 20 Lizbeth and is about 5 1/2".
