I just took a class and canned whole tomatoes for the first time last week. I already can’t wait to eat them. Now that I have seen how easy canning can be, I want to can everything!
Melissa, I think it can be addicting! I started with jam but tomato sauce is one of my all time favorites to can – we use it so much!
Gotta be jams but really loving preserving my huge tomato harvest this year.
So many recipes! Love that we’re doing this together! xo
I have yet to try canning anything (but would love to give it a try!), but my favorite canned thing to eat is probably strawberry jam 🙂
Strawberry rhubarb is one of my favorites! You should definitely try canning this year!
Sounds like a fun week. I really should can marinara, we eat it at least once a week.
This is really interesting, You are a very skilled
blogger. I’ve joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your magnificent post.
Also, I’ve shared your web site in my social networks!
I just canned for the first time this summer! And love it! I made strawberry vanilla jam and blackberry lime and managed to get my twelve year old’s very rare two- thumbs up “better than smucker’s, momma” …. and that’s the best thing ever:)
Lori, that’s so fantastic that your kids loved your jam! And blackberry lime sounds so delicious!
I’m scrambling to find time to can stone fruit!
Abby, I was scrambling to find stone fruit to can (but I had the time) then I discovered a ‘homeless’ fruit tree outside my friend’s apartment. The discovery was pure joy 🙂
I love canning week!
Me too Sarah!! I noticed on instagram that some ladies did a whole weekend retreat filled with canning – wouldn’t that be fabulous?!
Thanks for bringing the cool back to canning, ladies!
haha!! Thanks Ellie! It is cool, right?! Or I’m just a big nerd!
Last year was my first year canning and I only attempted a few simple things. This year I am hoping to do a better job of filling my pantry. This would be a fun giveaway to win!
I’m also canning more every year! Every year I learn more and get a little better. Keep it up 🙂
My favorite thing to can is roasted tomatoes. I use them all winter long in everything from enchiladas to stew and marinara sauce. Yum!
Melissa, tomato sauce is a favorite of ours but I’ll have to try just roasting fresh tomatoes too! Sounds perfect for winter comfort foods!
I love canning strawberry jam and dilly beans. Dilly beans = ‘dill pickled green beans’ outside of the Midwest/Indiana.
I love fruit preserves! Just yummy.
I love canning peach vanilla bean jam.
I love the honey peaches canning recipe. I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for posting it.
