It's Canning Time...

Can you guess what I have been up too?

I've been canning...

Above, I made up 3 batches of Strawberry Freezer Jam
This is the recipe we used:

We made up a couple batches of Plum Jelly
This is our most favorite flavor!

Then I made up a batch of Pear Butter.
This is very tasty and it's even good just by the spoonful!

Pear Jelly...

Finally we canned several batches of tomatoes!

We still need to make and can salsa,
so hopefully we can get that done before the end of the month.

It looks and sounds like you have been a busy girl, Amy! Your jams and jellies look so yummy! Yes, fall has finally started to show up around here and there is a chill in the air. I LOVE fall! Have a blessed week! :)

Yes, all the wonderful bounty and harvest of sweet jellies and jams will be such a blessing in the winter months. The jars always just look so beautiful when they are canned!
I so enjoyed canning with you my dear!

You have surely been very busy! I know how much time and effort goes into canning, and yet the enjoyment of having it on your shelves and eating it throughout the winter is so worth it! I have never made pear butter, it sounds delicious! Congratulations to your two boys getting baptized! What a special time that is for your family... and the harvest party sounds fun too... so much to enjoy this time of year! I made two pumpkin pies from one of the pie pumpkins that finished ripening, and they were oh so good. Hugs to you Amy, have a blessed and wonderful week!

What a busy girl you have been! I LOVE Strawberry freezer jam and haven't made any in years. I used to make apple butter in the fall for hubby but he can't eat it anymore. xo Diana

HI! All you canning looks so wonderful! How very nice to have that stashed in your pantry for your family. Your home sounds like a bustle of wonderful activity! Praise God for your boys following after the Lord Jesus, and proclaiming to others His gospel in their lives.
