Preserving The Harvest 2010

This year I had the most fun ever canning our harvest and local produce and some not so local like my peaches I got for a steal!  Canning is rewarding and while it is not instant gratification it is extremely gratifying.  I can’t take all the credit either because my daughter helped me make my peach salsa this year and my husband always pitches in it can become quite a family passion!

     This year we canned the following: (many of the recipes I took from the Ball Book I call it the canning Bible but I always tweak recipes to make them slightly my own anyway!

peach jam

blueberry butter

peach salsa 

My Peach Salsa

My Peach Salsa

peach butter


canned tomatoes/italian canned tomatoes

barbecue sauce

and pepper jelly.

I am still hoping to put up more pepper jelly for the holidays for gifts and some applesauce this fall!
