Peach Raspberry Jam is sweet and tart. Great on toast, in thumbprint cookies, in yogurt and over ice cream. Garlicky Broccoli Stem Relish; you can use this on sandwiches, and on toasted baguette with your favorite cheese. Homemade Barbecue Sauce; not too sweet and a smoky spicy flavor. Nectarine Conserve with Raisins and Walnuts; I love conserve they have a lot going on. They are sweet, sticky and can be used as an appetizer with bread and cheese, as a dessert on top of pound cake or ice cream, even for breakfast in oatmeal.

Finally It Fells Like Fall

What a wonderful summer All In A Jar had with the students that attended classes. Thank you! We had access to a lot of beautiful fruits and vegetables to play with in class. Some people think it is time to put away the canning supplies. But wait… no need to; we have more canning to do. What about all those amazing pears? You can make pears with toasted almonds and almond liqueur, pear ginger jam, hearty chutney or pear halves in simple syrup. So many varieties of apples out there too, what about a spicy apple butter, apple pie filling,  applesauce or apple jelly. For those oranges, how about marmalade or sparkling wine orange jelly or orange vanilla crud. Some other great ideas, persimmon jam or butter, pickled brussels sprouts, cauliflower, onions, carrots and beets. Fall and winter are great times to can, added bonus of warming your home up too. Especially when using your pressure canner because it has a long processing cook-time. With the pressure canner you can be making soups, stews, beans, tuna, and much more. This is a great time to make some homemade sausage for the freezer; cooler days work best when working with meat. Don’t let the cold weather or rain stop you from canning! Homemade canned goods make the best gifts. So get in the kitchen and start canning! The holidays are  coming.
November 29 Saturday is support local small businesses. Please remember our local small businesses when shopping for gifts this holiday season.
