I have not seen limits before. They either had them or they didn't.
I don't always peel them. Just scrub them.But my question is don’t you get tired of peeling potatoes (50 lbs!) when you can that many? I’ve only canned potatoes once and I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands so it’s never easy to do. But that session of canning potatoes really did me in for a couple days because of the peeling.
So teach me oh wise one - I know not why you have to peel the carrots???Canned out first batch of chicken soup last night but unfortunately was so tired that I didn’t even think about peeling the carrots. Just rinsed and diced. Realized it this morning. Guess I’ll be repackaging it for the freezer. Disappointed I forgot. I don’t peel them for eating so it’s not something I think about. Guess I was to tired to be canning but needed to get the chicken canned. 12 pints will be repackaged and put in the freezer. Hope to never make that mistake again. Looking forward to trying it anyways.

Far from wise. Lol So do you not peel all your root vegetables?! The canning books etc say your gunna die of botulism if you don’t peel root vegetables. The botulism is just lurking in the shadows (or cracks of the veggies) to kill us. LolSo teach me oh wise one - I know not why you have to peel the carrots???
I'd not heard this before but like you, figured the PC kills the bacteria that lurch in the veggies. Will be curious if others chime in. I would think as long as the jars are properly sealed etc. all good.So it’s normal not to peel the root vegetables? Sheesh. I’d rather leave it on.
