Default Summer Canning 2015

Still have so much to learn!

I plan to make some peach butter very soon. If I buy organic and put them in the food processor first, can I use the peals? I don't mind removing them, but if they have some nutrients without chemicals, I'd like to keep them.

I'm hoping to do some pressure canning this summer, in addition to strawberry jam, salsa, and whole peeled tomatoes like last year. I need to get a pressure canner first...

SCORE!! Went to the farmers market to one place that has organic peaches. When the guy was getting the basket out of the big cooler, dd noticed a basket of plums. I asked how much they were and he said they were very ripe and he would just give them to me. Well, very ripe plums = plum butter by morning....for the cost of the honey that goes in. Epic win for the newbie.

We went strawberry picking this morning. That should be strawberry jam, strawberry kiwi jam and strawberry lemonade concentrate by this evening.

Next week starts strawberry season here....I have rhubarb and will be making strawberry rhubarb jam....yummy.
I haven't needed to make jam for a couple of years as what we had, has lasted this long.
ds has asked for blackberry jam, also.
We used to get peaches from an elderly man nearby, but he was called home by the Lord this winter. So will have to see if his daughter will be handling that.

I canned diced potatoes and several pints of pineapple. The potatoes made home fries a snap and so much faster. I hate the peeling though!! I heard from someone that they liked my lilac jam so that was nice. I actually eat that just off the spoon. A little nibble here or there when I want something sweet.

Figs are in season here, so I've made fig jam and strawberry fig jam. I plan on making whole fig preserves this week as well as trying to come up with a jalapeno fig jam.

---------- Post added at 06:46 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:45 PM ----------

Also, we were given local peaches at the market today, so there is more peach jam and peach butter in my future as well.

A friend called and said her plum tree was dropping plums and she is out of the country. Kids & I went and picked with another friend. We got 40 pounds total! Free! I didn't have time last week to fully process/can them so I pitted and froze in 4 cup allotments. They will become plum jam and plum sauce. I have 7 bags. She has more plums but I don't have time this week to even pit and freeze.

This is one my mom had, we didn't process it but I don't expect the jam to last long.

Last Tuesday I THOUGHT I had canned green beans. Today I took the results to the compost pile. Not sure what I did wrong but I will try again......after I stop pouting.
