I made Raspberry jam and it is YUMMY.
The strawberries from our local grower Saechou’s are awesome.
3. Himalaya Blackberries
We have to redo this since the jam didn’t set. We tried to do more than one batch together and that didn’t work.
4. Peach Jam
Half of it set and half didn’t. This time I think it was the pectin we used. It’s hard to say.
5. Peach Jelly
This didn’t set. Though I used the unset jelly to make a barbecue sauce for pork ribs last night and they were AWESOME.
Made from Gravenstein apples. These apples tend to be juicier and make the applesauce a tad runny.
7. Apple jam
We made this from the peels and such left over from the applesauce apples. It set beautifully.
8. Spaghetti Sauce
The plan is to buy Pepperwood Tomatoes (the sweetest on the planet) and make sauce this year.
I loved having our own salsa. We make it from all fresh ingredients we buy from a local produce stand.
I’m hoping to make my first attempt at dill pickles made from pickling cucumbers. I’ve always been afraid to try, but this year, I’m going to.
11. Dill Relish
I go through a lot of this every year and I’d like to try my own.
The Redneck wants to can yellow hot peppers this year.
We have a local fisherman who will sell us fresh tuna and we can it up. It’s the best tuna EVER. Most of the Tuna is from the Oregon coast, but some is off the coast of Crescent City, California.
We’re doing a ton this year.
I love this time of year. Canning is fun when the Redneck and I do it together.
