Canning Season is Upon Us!


Sorry I have been MIA for a while, but I was battling a kidney stone and then a head cold and then a stomach bug... it was fun let me tell you.  Anyway, in my spare time, when I am not sick, I have been canning everything I can get my hands on. 

It is hard to believe that a year ago, I was afraid of canning and now I can't seem to stop!  So far I have "put up"

-- Strawberry Jam
-- Raspberry Vanilla Jam
-- Black & Blueberry Jam
-- Peach Butter
-- Salsa
-- Bread and Butter Pickles

Coming this weekend, I will add:
-- Homemade Claussen Knock-Off Pickles,
-- Spicy Beer Mustard
-- Apple Pepper Jelly (This recipe is close, you just add red pepper flakes)
