One of my Insane Goals this year was to can something using the canning jars that my grandmother gave me. To be honest, I was half expecting my “canning” experience this year to be making cookies-in-a-jar gifts. I didn’t have much faith in myself.
Thankfully, I have friends and family who were willing to take me under their canning wings! Emily and I spent a day tackling a crate of peaches. We mostly used them for peach jam, which we froze actually. We canned a few jars of peaches and also made some salsa. Then a couple weeks later my mom helped me make pizza sauce and more salsa.
This is a big deal, folks. I do not consider myself a hardcore homemaker. The fact that I have a shelf – wait!… two shelves in my basement filled with canned goods is mind boggling to me. So……
I’m bragging. Yes, the whole point of this post is to show off these beautiful jars. Please “Ooooo” and “Ahhhhh” as you see fit. 😉
And finally, the most amazing peach jam! I’m drooling just looking at it!
Have you ever canned anything?
