So, I'm one of those people with a pot that's only used for jams and jellies.
Canning is one of those activities that I learned to do as a little girl and that I adore. I love the idea of knowing what's in my food, I love canning organic and local and seasonal.
More than any of that, I love experimenting. ;-)
It's cherry season, so I made maraschino cherries, cherry jam and cherry pie filling.
I made some carrot cake jam -- next time I'm totally adding green chiles to this. :-D
Also, it's blackberry season, so JELLY!
And I got a lovely flat of strawberries and strawberry preserves are my favorite, so...
About half of my haul. :D Lovely jars!
I can't wait for apple season.
Apple sauce. Apple jelly. Apple pie filling. Apple butter...
Much love, y'all.
