What are you canning?
Thought I'd start one since we talked about it on our gardening thread and I'm going to be starting this evening. So, what is going on in everyone's kitchens?
First up on the list here, raspberry jam! DD & I have just started picking and we're maybe a tenth of the way through. :shock: They are just really getting a good start and there are tons not ready, we're going to have berries coming out of our ears and DD is going to look like the blueberry girl on Willy Wonka with her purple hands and likely semi-permanent lipstick. Blackberries are set on crazy heavy too, so they won't be too far behind. :D
20 minutes of picking yielded these. We're going to take gallon ice cream pails and the 4-wheeler for the next round lol.
I wish Indiana was not so far away :-(
Sorry Kevin! Berries wouldn't ship well but jam will :wink:
I generally freeze berries on cookie sheets then bag them up in one cup portions in sandwich bags then put them in large ziplocks. I don't label the bag but rather label a piece of paper with product names and dates and slip it into the bag. Did you know that by eating blueberries and rasperries you get a perfect balance of micronutrients. The highs and lows are counterbalanced by the other.
I love raspberries!!!
I just drove through Indiana on the way home from MI on Wednesday, Darn!
I have canned so far this year:
Strawberry jalepino jam
Strawberry Amaretto Jam
Strawberry Pineapple Jam
Strawberry Lime Jam
about 65 8 oz jars so far!
Doing strawberry peach jam today, with the last strawberries and first peaches.
Blueberries are just coming on.
Strawberry Amaretto? I need that recipe! I froze a bunch of strawberries so I could do strawberry/jalapeno when the peppers are ready. Might have to use part to try the amaretto!
Should have stopped by on your way through, you could have taken buckets of raspberries home. One side of our property runs parallel with a railroad track, they are all over down the sides of it. We picked in our woods yesterday, haven't even started down the rr track yet.
I picked my rhubarb for my D/I/L to make jam, does that count?:lol:
We planted strawberries in our yard last year and this year I've already picked and frozen over 3 gallons of them :-) I'm keeping some of them for smoothies, but I'm really wanting to try a recipe I saw for strawberry lemon marmalade.
Nope of my stuff will ripen together so that I can can. (Can can? Am able to can...) I get like 3 blueberries one day. a single strawberry the next. Then the birds or something gets them, then I might get two more the day after that...
I could not figure out why I had so many jelly's done. With 65 strawberries, I way over did it. I forgot the Cherry's
Cherry Jalapeņo Jam
