Here's my newest creative project.
I've been interested in canning for a while, but all the recipes were intimidating. They were such big batches. And I have such a small kitchen. Not much counter space. But a new book came out this year called Food in Jars. It's perfect. Small batches mean I can do it in a small kitchen and I don't invest a whole weekend.
Pickled cherries, dilly beans and pickled okra. Roasted sweet peppers. Fig jam. Tomato jam (YUM). Peach butter (like a jar of sunshine).
And I will be able to serve over the next year or share them as gifts. Though that will be hard, because they are delicious and I am suffering from selfishness. At least where the tomato jam and peach butter are concerned.
