Remember those ten pounds of strawberries from last week? Well I thought I'd update you as to what became of some... I made some strawberry jam, and also did a strawberry simple syrup. Both turned out pretty well, even if I do say so myself. ;-)

Does anyone else here do any canning? Have you done anything recently?

Oh yes I do! I made strawberry jam with my strawberries last week. I will make blueberry and blackberry preserves next. I make dilly beans and garlic dill pickles. I tend to freeze my veggies rather than can them. I have also made pickled beets and canned tomatoes. Last year I made apple cider jelly and jalapeƱo jelly. We press cider and I thought it would be nice to use it in a different way. Those jellies were SOOOOO GOOD!!

We made peach pie filling...we also made peach chipotle salsa, chipotle in adobo sauce...and we are going to make some peach bbq sauce tomorrow. Can you tell I bought a 40 lb basket of peaches over the weekend? LOL

 Those are awesome! I should get my butt in gear and do it too but never do.

Oh yum! I would love to can. I may try it this year if I get enough produce.

Wow it looks so good!  I've never canned before but my friend makes great pickles and I always look forward to them.

What will you use the strawberry simple syrup for?

I just canned candied jalapenos. I've never tried a jam. I should.

I make my own jam/jelly and juices but haven't in a while.  This year doesn't look too promissing either since our grapes died and the apple tree doesn't seem to have any fruit on it. :(  back to square one......hopefully I'll be able to pick a lot of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries this year though.  We'll see I guess.
