Canning and Preserving

pickling cucumbers

Well the lone pickle plant that survived the hail storms has produced a handful of pickling cucumbers.  No pickles this year but I will get a load or two of sweet relish.  And yes I’ve got loads of zucchini, (of course) so zucchini relish is on the list this week too.

Busy day!

Here is my list from last week.


5 quarts and 5 pints dilly beans

21 half pint jars peach jam (I halved the sugar and added lemon juice and no almond)

8 half pint jars peach butter

4 quarts canned peaches

4 pints zucchini relish

5 pints sweet relish

5 half pints pear butter


Harvested a pint or so of dill seed.  


5 quarts frozen corn

Have you had a busy week preserving?  Did you try something new this week?  Leave a comment and share.  If you’ve blogged about your preserving go ahead and leave a comment with a link to your post.  I enjoy seeing what others are doing too.
