We have eaten a good many of them and they have caused no problems but I was reading on Facebook on my canning group site and they got into botulism. I finally just looked it up and found there are about 116 cases in the last 20 year, 48 percent from canning, then mostly from babies getting it from honey, after babies comes black tar heroin users so we are safe here don't you know, or people leaving baked potatoes in aluminum foil and I don't foil my potatoes anyway. CDC reports the following.
Protect yourself from botulism: When in doubt, throw it out!
116 cases in 20 years is a pretty low incidents, and only 48 cases from canning, so canning by far and enlarge is pretty safe. I do know that the highest incidence of home canned botulism is from beets or corn. So I am going to try and especially be careful of the beets and since, the ones I did last year haven't gotten eaten in the last year, they are a little short on water and are in pint jars I am going to happily give them to the pig so I can put my beet pickles in their jars. I think the runs along better safe than sorry lines.......
Off to make pickled beets.... I pray the Lord speaks to you, I know that until the Lord speaks to you nothing else toward salvation can happen. I do know that faith cometh by hearing and the easiest way to hear God is by picking up his Word, the Bible and reading it..... He will talk to you. Try and see if he doesn't..... tomorrow.
