So, what are you guys canning right now?

My MIL brought me over 120lbs of cucumbers. So I am doing Spicy pickles right now. She actually just called me and told me she has 40 more lbs for me. Im going to have to find something else for them...

My oranges are starting to ripen as well so planning on some Orange Marmalade.

Tonight we are also canning whole tomatoes with a russian recipe my SMILs mom sent over to us.

HOPING to find some strawberries here soon to make some strawberry preserves and jams/jellys as well. But we shall see how that goes.

we have three little strawberry plants that have been giving us a few berries a day. not enough for anything but a treat. Last year I made my first batch of preserves at a farm I was working. IT was awesome to have that in the winter.

I'm jealous of all your cucumbers! The only thing I've done so far is freeze 8 quarts of strawberries and make 12 jars of strawberry jam. I'm itching to can something else though!

Nothing yet! When strawberries are in full season next month I'm going to do some jam but my garden is just reaching first harvests in the next couple weeks.

I canned a batch of rhubarb cinnamon jam last weekend. I havent yet ventured past jams yet. I would like to try salsa or pickles next.

Re: So, what are you guys canning right now?

tonight I did 19 quarts , 17 -24oz jars and 20 pints of apricots (in water and stevia

prepped almost as much apricots ready to make into jam on Tuesday (maybe one batch tomorrow night ) 3 large bowls needing a little more color before they turn to jam


we spent about 2 hours picking them today and I was in the kitchen working on them from 6pm to 1 am time for a shower lol

Nothing yet- we just past our last frost threat about 2 weeks ago. So our garden is just starting out. Will have strawberries in about a week or two for jam, then should have some blackberries not too much after. Blueberries in about a month. Sucks-I will have blueberries and blackberries but my strawberries will be all done (in terms of enough for jam) and I have to buy strawberries to make trippleberry jam. This will be my first year with a pressure canner and doing veggies- usually just freeze them. I am not sure if I am excited or scared.
