My Carrots got 3rd place cause I didn't pack them tight enough (which I actually did on purpose so that I don't mind)
of both my carots and pinto beans, they were the only ones entered in either class (not much of a turn out this year for canned goods)
My onions got an honorable mention because I didn't pack them tight enough, but that is alright with me.
My Salsa did win a third place, I was so super thrilled!!!! Again, this was my first year of canning, and I did do most of it by myself (with some help from John, I did also get some help with the pinto beans from friends) it was also my very first time using a pressure caner so I was just excited when all the jars sealed, when it comes down to it, I think that is what matters most. As continue to can I will be able to betterperfect the technique and one day I looked forward to getting a first place ribbon
