It's All in the Can

For the last few days I have been picking through a HEAP of Ball, Kerr and Kraft jars, filled with "mystery" ingredients. The purpose is to increase my stash of canning jars for some summertime fun.

What - you don't think this will be fun? My husband, HB (honey buns), thinks I should can everything we can to fill our pantry. Not! We found a free source for apricots last year. HB thinks I should can apricots. I hate canned apricots - and so does he. HB thinks we can trade them for canned fruit we like. Not even going there. I will just make jam - which we both like and I can give it away, because I want to.

However, I do have some items I would like to can this year - because I now have some canning jars. Here is my list:
  • Bread and Butter Pickles 
  • Hot Sauce
  • Tomatoes
  • Chunky Apple Butter
  • Cherries
  • Peaches
  • and Jam
And when I am all through (this is the best part), I will have a pantry lined with beautiful jars just like this!

Way to go Ann! If only we could just go downstairs to our shelves and they would just already be there :) This IS the telestial world though... Kevin and I had great fun with you the other day. (Landon had a good nap :)
