Looks like delays are a month out.
You would still get them in time for harvest.
I might give some a try.

See my old 'canning sins' post... I often reuse lids (but have only ever used ball lids). Never had a lid fail that sealed correctly initially..

Today’s efforts yielded 9 pints of sweet & hot sandwich pickle chips.

I couldn't double stack them so I had to have both canners going. 1 old Kerr jar broke in the first batch and the last group has about 30 minutes left. I'll have 27 pint jars with 10-12 links in each jar when I'm done.
So a 6 month update to this:
I've been pulling a jar every so often, including one this morning. I'm pretty pleased with the flavor but the consistency is NOT that of a just purchased sausage link. They just won't stay together and are generally soft and easily breakable.
I've found they're more suited to cutting in small pieces and mixing into scrambled eggs with onions peppers mushrooms etc.
When I did this I wasn't sure what to expect and was a little disappointed when they kept breaking apart on me but overall I'm pleased with the results.

Got 9 half-pint jars of strawberry preserves from roughly 2.5 quarts (3+) lbs. of local strawberries this morning.

I got 100 on order today. We shall see. My daughter found some Balls at Walmart and I'll probably use the Harvest guards for pressure cooking and non-staining stuff like stoganoff, soups and corn and veggies.

So if a total novice wanted to get into canning can it be done with out buying specialty cookers etc. ? Want to dabble to see its for or not for me and don't want to throw hundreds of dollars. Thank You

Depends what you are doing. If you do jellies and jams etc. Just need a large cooking pot and pint jars/lids/caps. Make some homemade apple butter, you wont be disapointed
