Canning or home canning is preserving fruits and vegetables at home in jars with lids that seal to keep them fresh. Canning is used to preserve any foods. Based on the food either a pressure canner or water bath canner are used. A pressure canner is just that, a canner that preserves food under pr…essure. This is used for meats and low acid vegetables - green beans, corn. A water bath is used for tomatoes and fruits in a syrup - plums, peaches, pears, raspberies. STRICT guidelines MUST be followed to use the proper procedure for the proper food to avoid salmonella, botulism, etc. If in doubt, freeze it. Canning Food used to be called "Putting Up" food. The common method was to boil the food (usually fruit or vegetables) in "Mason Jars" using the cooking process to force the air out of the jar causing a vacuum. This allows the food to remain edible for a long period of time. ( Full Answer )

Fresh greens can be frozen but they have to be blanched first. Blanching means to place in boiling water for a few minutes. An icewater bath after blanching will stop the cooking process and insure no bacteria can form before placing in the freezer.
Turnips are vegetables. These vegetables are grown in the ground inmuch the same way that a potato goes in the ground.

As with any canned food, if the ends of the can are bulging out, the can should be thrown out. Otherwise, if the green beans are discolored (turning brown), a strange consistency (mushy), or smell bad, they should be thrown out.
Absolutely. Large pots of anything put immediately into the refrigerator are at risk of spoiling because their size keeps them from cooling down to an acceptably cold temperature fast enough. You should consider dividing large batches of anything into smaller containers or using an ice wand, ice bat…h, or other fast-cooling method. ( Full Answer )
No, bunnies shouldn't eat canned green beans. Green beans are not a good food for bunnies, they cause gas (which can actually have deadly consequences for rabbits). Canned foods are not good for rabbits either, they're lower in nutrients than fresh foods and they have additives that are fine for h…umans but not for rabbits. In addition to plenty of hay, and some high quality pellets, rabbits should eat fresh greens like dark leafy lettuces, herbs, weeds, and the green tops of root vegetables. There are many plants that rabbits can't eat, so research any plant carefully before giving it to your rabbit. See the related links/questions below for more information. ( Full Answer )
The shelf life of home canned green beans varies depending on themethod used. If you are using a pressure cooker, then the beans canlast up to five years. For the water bath method, 12 months is theaverage shelf life.
Green tea and canned (or bottled) tea are two separate categories that can overlap. For example, you can have green tea in a can, or freshly brewed green tea. Similarly you can have other kinds of tea (like black tea) from a can, and you can make them freshly brewed as well. So there are two ques…tions here: Is canned tea or bottled tea better or worse than freshly brewed tea? Canned or bottled tea is much worse. Because it has been brewed long in advance, it loses both flavor and health benefits (the antioxidants and the flavor chemicals both break down over time). It is also much more expensive per cup than brewing your own tea. It is also less sustainable (uses more resources in its production). Is green tea better than black tea or other types of tea? This is largely a matter of personal taste. Green tea is healthy, but so are other types of tea, and there is no evidence that green tea is universally healthier than black tea or other teas. Drink whichever kind of tea tastes best to you! ( Full Answer )
No, No, No, only feed them fresh veg and fruit. And the usual pellets and hay.

Canned green beans are usually already cooked, so just heat them in the oven in a small casserole dish, with butter, brown sugar and tarragon. Throw in some sliced or chopped sauteed or microwaved red pepper just for color if you have any.
Turnips are ancient vegetables that were cultivated almost 4,000 years ago in the Near East. Like other members of the to the Cruciferae family, including kale, collards, cabbage, and mustard greens, they were all developed from a wild mustard. Both the Greeks and Romans developed several new vari…eties, and they were popular throughout Europe, especially before the introduction of the potato. Early European settlers introduced turnips to North America. They grew well in the South, where they became an integral part of Southern African-American cuisine. Plantation owners may have grown turnips for their roots, leaving the leaves for the enslaved Africans. Because Western African cuisine traditionally uses a wide variety of greens, the enslaved Africans readily adopted turnip greens. Turnip greens continue to be an important vegetable in traditional Southern American cooking. ( Full Answer )

he typical serving size is 1/2 cup. Some people will have more, some less.

Don't put the can in the microwave. Indeed not! As they allegedly used to say, Don't try this at home, folks! The beans won't be, even if green. The metal can and could - indeed would. It absorbs the microwave (ultra-short radio) energy and converts it into electrical eddy currents within the… metal. And several hundred W into a small amount of thin sheet-metal of low resistance...

Turnip leaves are smaller and more tender tha…n collards, and they have a slightly bitter flavor. ( Full Answer )
Turnip greens may prevent cancer by providing special nutrient support for three body systems that are closely connected with cancer development as well as cancer prevention: . Detoxification support : If, like most people, you are exposed to toxins from the environment and your diet, you are at …increased risk of toxin-related damage that can eventually increase your cells' risk of becoming cancerous unless you give your body's detoxification system adequate nutritional support. That's one of the reasons it's so important to eat turnip greens and other cruciferous vegetables on a regular basis. Turnip greens supply antioxidant nutrients and sulfur-containing nutrients to boost detoxification. Turnip greens also contain phytonutrients called glucosinolates that can help activate detoxification enzymes and regulate their activity. . Antioxidant benefits : Chronic oxidative stress (chronic presence over overly reactive oxygen-containing molecules and cumulative damage to our cells by these molecules) is a risk factor for developing most types of cancer. By providing you with a broad array of antioxidant nutrients, turnip greens help lower your cancer risk by helping you avoid chronic oxidative stress in your cells. As an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and manganese, turnip greens provide four conventional antioxidant nutrients, along with several other phytonutrients. Turnip greens provide hydroxycinnamic acid, quercetin, myricetin, isorhamnetin, and kaempferol, among other key antioxidant phytonutrients. . Anti-inflammatory benefits : Like chronic oxidative stress and accumulated toxins, chronic unwanted inflammation can significantly increase your risk of cancers and other chronic diseases (especially cardiovascular diseases). As an excellent source of vitamin K and a good source of omega-3 fatty acids (in the form of alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA), turnip greens provide you with two important anti-inflammatory nutrients. Vitamin K acts as a direct regulator of your inflammatory response, and ALA is the building block for several anti-inflammatory messaging molecules. Glucosinolates in turnip greens may also provide important anti-inflammatory benefits. Chronic imbalances in any of these three systems can increase risk of cancer, and when imbalances in all three systems occur simultaneously, the risk of cancer increases significantly. Turnip greens help fight bladder cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer. Turnips also protect your cardiovascular system by lowering cholesterol. Your liver uses cholesterol as a basic building block to product bile acids. When you eat turnip greens, their fiber binds together with some of the bile acids in your intestine in such a way that the bile acids simply stay inside your intestine and pass out of your body in a bowel movement, rather than getting absorbed along with the fat they have emulsified. When this happens, your liver needs to replace the lost bile acids by drawing upon your existing supply of cholesterol, and as a result, your cholesterol level drops. Turnip greens provide you with this cholesterol-lowering benefit whether they are raw or cooked; however, the cholesterol-lowering ability of raw turnip greens improves significantly when they are steamed. Another cardiovascular benefit of turnip greens is their exceptional folate content: they provide 575 micrograms of folate in every hundred calories. That's an amount that is unsurpassed by the most commonly-eaten cruciferous vegetables. One cup of cooked turnip greens contains 1098 micrograms of total carotenoids, 6588 micrograms of beta carotene, 12154 micrograms of lutein and zeaxanthin, and 220% Daily Value of vitamin A.

Fresh and young greens go well with turnip. Green leaves of the turnip top are a good source of vitamin A. There are many different recipes for turnip with greens.
Transfer the beans to a clean jar, and prepare and process the same way you did the first time.
The lid was probably not sealed tight enough, allowing air to get inside the jar.
Unless the jar is date stamped (rare) all you will get is aballpark date. And, that is the early 1900's.
