Default Re: Whatcha Makin'? Summer Canning 20016

Canning season has begun here. I split five flats of strawberries with a friend and we spent two days canning. 48 half pints and 25 pints later (over 6 gallons!), we have 10 varieties of strawberry jam:

Regular with honey as a sweetener
Regular with sucanat
Lavender with honey
Lavender with white sugar
Mint
Balsamic pepper
Balsamic thyme
Chocolate with coconut sugar
Chocolate with sucanat
Chia refrigerator jam

Off to a good start. Tomorrow is a blueberry u-pick. The plan is to freeze those, but we may can some too.



Plans for the future include:

Tomatoes (whole and sauced)
Salsa
Green beans
Pickles
Relish
Applesauce
Apple butter
Pickled beets?
Pumpkin?
Watermelon preserves?

The last three depend on if we get a good enough harvest out of the garden and feel up to it.
