Canning fever!

I've been canning the last two weeks! Lovin' every minute of it, too! I carry the Ball canning book around like it is attached to my hip, planning each day's recipes to preserve. Whatever made me jump into canning with both feet? Maybe our move to NC last year and all the wonderful plethora of farmer's markets in the Asheville area. Another reason this move was one of the best "game changer" moves for us:)

The first photo is my absolute favorite (so far)...Spiced Peach Jam on the web site.

To date, I've canned Summer Salsa, Italian and Mexican spiced tomatoes, Honey Syrup Peaches, Spiced Peach Jam and Bread & Butter Pickles. Feel free to ask questions and I'll answer with much excitement but as a total newbie!

Just for FUN, I'm entering a contest on gardenofeatingblog, "Can You Can It?"
Take a peek at this great blog, you'll LOVE it!
