I truly believe the teenage years go by the fastest. They are so busy and then one day, they are just done. It's amazing...

Library is the best! I love being able to read so many books for free! And of course to "try out" a recipe book before I buy it. Happy canning!

Apples are son to start here! I am looking forward to it. I stopped at 150 pounds of tomatoes.... which will never get us through the winter, but will certainly get us through a good chunk of it. Glad someone can find those jars! I have the wide mouth quart and pint.... just not the perfect little have pints. Darn it! lol.

Ashley English is a favorite of mine too. The peach butter is amazing! And next year I think I'll save up for some of those jars. They look real nice + beautiful too!

Those are some well loved jars by now I suppose :) SO many of ours have moved from house to house over the years.... and I always keep an eye out at thrift stores too!

They don't stack well, but they sure are pretty! I found them at Target (and those tall pint and a half jars were there too).

The idea came from Sweet & Tart. Food in Jars has one for Pear Butter that is delicious too. I didn’t follow either to a “t” because I don’t want as much sugar in mine, but you can adjust to your own taste. Enjoy!

I'm thinking blueberry pie for solstice. Wouldn't that be an amazing treat & fantastic tradition to begin! Yum.

Blueberries love the northeast like nowhere else I have lived. And that's saying a lot 'cuz I've been around. lol. Email me your address if you're brave and I'll send you some jam. For reals. xo~

Yeah! I'm so glad you loved everything!! Looking forward to posting swap photos now that yours has safely arrived to you. I poured over your blog to make sure (I hoped) that I was sending something very lovely just for you! And yes! I do think we have a great deal in common too. The honey is amazing..... so glad to share a treasure with a kindred spirit. xo~

I keep telling myself I should really just buy that darned electric ice cream maker. Blueberry ice cream in December sounds pretty amazing :)

I can’t wait to share my pantry space later this fall. Still working on getting a space carved out in the corner of the basement. I will have a full wall once apple season is done. Speaking of apples…. we got some “second” quality ones from a friend and made apple butter on the crockpot. So easy and mixed with some maple syrup and cinnamon it tastes like childhood to me. Oh how I loved apple butter when I was little :)

I could have probably stopped in to write you once or twice this week. It would have been the same thing every day. I blanched this, peeled that, pickled those and put them in a jar. Hot water bathed them all and listened to the pop-pop-pop of the jars sealing after I plucked them from the bubbling water. Hours upon... Continue reading
