You mentioned Jam, can I share my Jam story, When the children were little we had an abundance of strawberries, but they were sick of having strawberries in just about everything . I found a recipe for Jam, never made Jam before, sounded easy off I went. Looked ok, bottled about four jars, went to use it and Oh Dear Jam was now toffee, no way to get it out of the Jars unless I broke them. Forward to 2020, found another easy recipe, this time I was really careful, but it would no set, the recipe said if it would not set boil it for a couple of minutes more. I did that and once again we had Strawberry Toffee. I now believe I am not meant to make strawberry jam.
What a lot of preserves' I am jealous LOL
Oh thanks 4 my big laugh i have had a few failyours ago but only when i tried to double or tripple the batch.Now i do only singles and it works great huga xxx
I've pulled up all the tomatoes, peppers, and squash and planted onions, radishes and turnip greens. Finished my muscadine jellies, but don't have nearly as much as you. Looks beautiful. Enjoy!
Thanks every bit helps and John keeps passing them out so i make extra Shhhhhhhh don't tell him lol
Well you have been busy. I have been watching a program on the TV about tow truckers that work in Canada and the weather in winter is so bad at times I wonder why anyone would drive in it. So having a lot of preserves would help in keeping you off the roads a lot.
My cousin just sent me dried Pears she does dried Apricots and Plums as well.
Oh i do that to if i can get them love them too hugs xx
I admire your ability to preserve so much food! Much better than store bought cans I bet!
Oh yes for sure thanks -you hugsxxx
welcome back. Gotta go, you made me hungry.
Lol best one i read today:):)
Beautiful work Carolyn and oh so tasty. My daughter and Grand daughter have also been canning and freezing all summer as the gardens have been coming in. I just sit back now days and enjoy the fruits of their labor, because they always share with me. Love you Lillian
Yes You My friend are BLESSED By our Lord And your family hugsxx
Yum Yum. Can I come shopping at your store! Haha. Hugs, Nan
i wish you could
Looks Yummy, Carolyn...I'll have mine with a piece of sourdough toast!
oh that sounds yummy hugsxx
Carolyn I am always amazed at the amount of preserving that you do each year. I do realise that you have very long cold winters and your busy preparing
well said and 100% true
Wow! Carolyn you've been so busy. I've never bottled anything in my life and am so impressed with how much you do. They all look great and I'm sure will last you through the winter at least! Love Chris
thanks Chris hugs for you my friendxx
Your always a busy Lady, keep warm this winter. Hugs Marian
Woods all stacked and we are ready (almost) lol
That is a lot of work - but look at the results - you will enjoy these through the winter! We have been having 30 and 40 degree weather here in Michigan but, a couple days a week our highs get to 70! How has your weather been? Is it cold yet? I would imagine your trees are beautiful for autumn! Hugs, Laura
Yes trees are lovely it is going down to freezing now at night zero .Most days it is 40+
My goodness you have been busy all the while waiting for a Hurricane to hit or bypass. Hopefully it will be the later. You are some brave lady or maybe you are trying to keep your mind off whatever is happening around you. You are amazing. Stay safe
Nothing happening here no covid for 3 hours or more.we live in the bush :):)
