I guess this is another "learning experience" (thanks for letting us "borrow" your original saying pa_friendly_guy) - I don't can food (yet), I dehydrate and stock up on canned goods like fruit that I'm not producing yet. I thought I'd share the "nasty side" of having canned goods if you don't check them on a regular basis.......

That is unusual Boo, I can see why it would scare the Bageebees out of you, ;) Glad it was only a can exploding and not a burglar. :D

I actually keep a wooden walking stick beside my bed :oops: If it had been a burglar :shock: .... I was that scared that I would have beaten the poor sod senseless with it. The dogs always let me know if anyone is around....and they slept right through the excitement.

I've contacted the company that produces the tinned fruit so that I can find out why it happened.......now I guess I just "hurry up and wait"......
