Canners: do you keep a canning log or diary?

The Dairy Queen | Sep 12, 2008 07:41 AM

Apologies if this has been posted before--I know there is a surge of canning posting lately.

I'm new at canning this year. One of the problems I'm realizing is that I don't really know how my results will be until much later, when I open up the jar and by then, if I love or don't love the results--too watery, too vinegary etc.--it's hard to recall what, exactly, I did in this "batch" that might be different than the last batch, or even which recipe I used. So, I'm thinking I might start keeping a log or diary of some kind.

Do any of your veteran canners do something like this and, if so, do you have any suggestions as to what types of things I should be keep note of and/or any "format" recommendations (do you keep a spiral notebook? just make notes on your calendar? etc.)

Thank you muchly!
