We are preparing for a full day of canning tomorrow. Woo Woo! Can't wait to get those plump red pieces of strawberry goodness and turn them into delectable jam for the year!
We just finished off our last jar of strawberry jam last week.
This year I decided to double my batch so we have enough to give as gifts. I pulled out my vintage caddy which now serves as a place to store my jars for canning...Ingenious
I picked up the things I needed like pectin of course. I have found using pectin makes the job a whole lot easier and gives the jam brilliant color and taste. I found these sweet strawberry tags and fabric squares & lids to add to my jars for a finished yummy look... Yes, I said yummy look...there is such a thing ya know! They are made by Better Homes & Gardens at WallyMart. I know I could have cut my own fabric and made my own tags, but this year...I am being lazy.
After canning these beauties...I will be canning apricots again this year...The fruit is growing on my tree as we speak... I am hoping to can some veggies this year...If the Pressure Cooker Fairy will come by and leave me the proper supplies I need! Well, I am off..There is so much to do!
Happy Monday to you!!
