Grandma wanted to make some relish today. So instead of making our kitchen and inside of house unbearably hot, finished up the canning outside on a Coleman 1932 Model 905. Afterwards cooked some hamburgers using two of the burners.  Still took a shower afterwards to cool off.

Nice work!
I bet that Coleman has performed that trick once or twice in its life.

And thanks for answering a question my mind always raises whenever I read "canning" in the threads, I wondered if actual cans were available and used there?  I see you have used preserving jars as we do here.
We refer to the general task as "Preserving"

That’s perfect! What a great looking stove, too. It looks like a piece of furniture.

Thank you all for posting, Grandma is very kind, she didn't want the home grown cucumbers that my middle daughter grew to go to waste.  She is 83 and enjoys canning. She made strawberry jam recently what was very pretty in color and very tasty, she made peach jelly recently also. It is a lot of work.

Andrew, preserving, cool lingo difference across the ocean.
The stove makes me wonder who used it A LOT. The entire paint area of the stove is covered with old grease stains on the sides and the cabinet doors.  Funny thing is it came with a porclain? covered metal grease tray that shows as shiny blueish below the knobs. It is clean just like it is brand new. 
That stove was used a lot which is wonderful. It it nice to see it work again and learn it little quirks. At least I didn't burn the burgers to a crisp, they came out actually very good.

Thank you guys.

Nice old-timey process there, Lee, very nice stove, and good to see it in service.

Sure makes me recall hot summer days years ago ('70s), when my sister and I had to get up early on summer vacation days to husk many ears of sweet corn that my Mother and Grandmother brought home.  They boiled it, then cleaned it off the ears and froze it, so we could have it all winter.
Now Mother and Grandmother are both gone..

My daughter and I have been making strawberry jam together for probably the last 10 years. She got married this last October and still wanted to work together. The problem is she works in a hospital drawing blood and has regular contact with COVID patients. So I set up an outside cooking area with my double burner stove. She and her husband chopped the berries and measured the sugar. I did the cooking and the canning. We wore our masks and stayed 10' apart but had a bit of normalcy in this abnormal time. I may set it up like this from now on it was easier to clean up with a garden hose when we were done. My wife frowns on using the hose in the kitchen.😄

Some of the best homemade jams, jellies and honey ive ever come across have been found on my journey along old Rt. 66. Im sure there are thousands more on the back roads of America. Makes me wanna jump in my truck right now! Along those back roads i speak of, (non Rt 66), Iowa has it going on! Lee you and grandma need to brew up a batch of jellies and bring it to Wilson this fall. It'll sell trust me.
