  1. I'd love to have a conversation with the author of this recipe. I'm concerned about food safety issues. How many pints foes this make?

    1. I agree with you, butter goes rancid. I don't even think pressure canning this would be safe

  2. Good morning Canning Granny! How many pints does this make?

  3. Looking at the ingredients, I'd say it would make 6-8 pints... just a guess, but I'm pretty good at guessing! ~~Granny

    1. I could not use all the nuts I had 2/3 of a qt in nuts left over ( using the 2 32 oz bags)and I got 6 qts not 9 pints. Lets see if I get to bake a pie if one doesn't seal lol

  4. Can't u use butter powder substitutes for safety?

  5. Can't u use butter powder substitutes for safety?
