I'm so glad I decided to have a crazy double canning year last year, as being pregnant and standing over a hot stove all day during summer would have been miserable this year!
ooh; share your recipie for peach lemonade concentrate???

Re: Do you can?

I've been eyeing a real food/clean strawberry jam recipe that I want to try to can but not sure how it would set up without pectin. I've never canned or made jam before so I kinda just keep putting it off.

One of these days, I will start gardening so that I can cut out grocery budget down even more. I have trimmed everywhere possible except for growing my own food.

This is the jam recipe... seems pretty simple.

6 pounds strawberries and/or blueberries, local/organic recommended
3 cup honey
1 unpeeled apples, grated
1 tablespoons lemon juice

Re: Do you can?

I got a pressure canner for my birthday! Today I did ham and bean soup in the PC and grape juice in the water bath! 11 quarts in one day is pretty good, I think.

I think it just takes a million years to get to the gel point, have you seen the saucer/spoon in the freezer trick?

And, hooray on the double canning last year. Your foresight is stupendous. I forgot to quote that.

I've done that recipe, its called heirloom strawberry jelly because way back when, they used apples to help jell. It doesnt jell like jelly with pectin does, its very runny. I use it to flavor homemade greek yogurt, it has the "fruit on the bottom" consistency if that makes any sense!

Oh, and add pears to my list! I just canned pear slices in lite syrup for the first time, and in vintage jars, no less!

Re: Do you can?

I am finally done canning (I keep saying that!). I usually keep a list, but I didn't this year so I will try to remember here
I canned: pineapple, strawberry vanilla jam, strawberry lemonade concentrate, mulberry lemonade concentrate, mulberry jam, mulberry syrup, chokecherry syrup, grape juice, grape jelly, peaches, spiced peaches, peach preserves, pears, spiced pear, pearsauce, cherry preserves, rosemary plums, blueberry syrup, blueberry jam, lavender vanilla blueberries, apple butter, apples, applesauce (plain, blueberry, strawberry) honey spiced oranges, pizza sauce, ketchup, tomato soup, italian spiced tomatoes, mexican spiced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, quartered tomatoes, marinara sauce, garlic & basil pasta sauce, green tomato slices, bruschetta tomatoes, heirloom salsa, corn salsa, peach salsa, green tomato relish, pickled yellow squash, pickled pepper rings, lima beans, daikon radish relish, corn, carrots, green beans, white chili, potato leek soup, vegetable soup, corn stock, vegetable stock, chicken stock, turkey stock.... and I think that's it!

I went with lactofermented pickles this year since I never have pickles turn out well. I also did some lactofermented salsa that is amazing!

My deep freezer and dehydrator have also been working hard!

Nice job! I think I need to dehydrate this year.. at least apples. I'm checking thrift stores for dehydraters.
