The Summer Canning Season Has Begun
Last year we, my partner Owen and I, did a lot of canning and have plans for more this year. Strawberries are ripe right now and Owen really wanted to make some strawberry jam so yesterday we went to Proulx Berry Farm to pick some strawberries. We ended up picking 6 4L baskets. Two of those went in to making delicious jam. Two will be frozen and two will be eaten fresh.
Here is Owen taking the tops off the berries for the jam.
And this is all of the jam we made: 11 half pints and 7 pints.
Later in the summer we have plans to make blueberry jam, raspberry jam, dill beans, grape juice and hot salsa.
