Summer Canning

This summer, my canning friend June & I decided we needed a plan. Last summer things got a little out of control as we canned a a ton of jams in one crazy nine hour canning day.

This year, we decided to simplify things a bit and do more seasonal canning.
So this summer, it was all about the jams: raspberry, blueberry, blackberry & a mix of blue/blackberry. For fun we tossed in a Lemon Vanilla jam.

It was a very sweet afternoon.


The blackberries in their jamming glory (or gory?).



Final tally:
26 - 1/4 pints
13 - 1/2 pints
7 - pints

So fantastic. Makes my 2 cups of peach butter look a little paltry. You have the storage space. Some day when we live in a bigger place...some day!
