I canned some fruit this week! Since Zoe is in school during the day I finally have time this summer to do things like this. So far I have made: strawberry jam, strawberry-jalapeno jam, strawberry-raspberry-jalapeno jam, blueberries in lavendar-honey syrup, peaches in vanilla bean-cinnamon-star anise syrup, raspberry-basil-balsamic jam, dill pickles, pickled peppers, & brandied bing cherries. That sounds like a lot of stuff. Some of the batches were only a few pints. I'm going to try to sell a few jars of jam at my garage sale in a couple of weeks. If I can find some good tomatoes I will make some salsa or pasta sauce. And I am excited for apple & squash season in a few months, too.
