Canned Salsa and Jams OH MY!

I have always wanted to learn how to can and I know several women who do it every year and are willing to teach me. I am just afraid of taking up their time to learn.  I have been wanting to can green beans, salsa and Jam. So today on Make Ahead Meals I entered my name in a Put 'em Up! Cookbook Giveaway. "Author Sherri Brooks Vinton has just published Put'em Up! A Comprehensive Home Preserving Guide for the Creative Cook from Drying and Freezing to Canning and Pickling." Visit the site to enter to win. I think it would be a fun girls day in the kitchen! If you win, do share the secrets!

Also on Merriment Design you can print the sweetest canning labels! I think this would be the cutest Christmas gifts that everyone would love and would be very cost effective! I mean who doesn't like fresh salsa or jam?

Let me know if you can or would be interest in learning. I would be interest in organizing a girls day of canning!  Just comment to let me know your thoughts.

  1. I used to love going to my Grandmother's and helping her can tomatoes, corn and make jams and jellies. Oh how I miss my precious Grannie, as she was the absolute best!

    Most of all...thank you for the beautiful words of encouragement you left on my blog. I suppose I've grown frustrated with this process and the feeling of "flying SOLO" had overwhelmed me. Your thoughts were so sweet and I took your advice :)

    Today was my RE consultation and I was so nervous. However, all was well and we will be doing IUI this cycle with Clomid + Ovidrel...wish us luck :)
