Don’t see what the fuss is about small batch processing. Maybe its just so many people are new to canning so it seems like a big deal. this is two 8oz jars of strawberries, blueberries and the last of the rhubarb that I canned up this morning. admit to buying everything but the rhubarb. cooked it down quick and then into two jars. Into a saucepan for processing. I went through the thrifts for a small tall stockpot for small batch canning, but a regular large saucepan is enough and does the job.
