Just a Little Bit of Canning :)

I've only done a little bit of canning this year....

Okay... So Maybe I got a little bit carried away.
from left to right: Raspberry jam, Peach jam, Blueberry jam, Pickles, Pear jam, Applesauce, Strawberry jam, Apple Jelly, Apple Pie filling, Salsa, and more applesauce

So far this year I have canned:
28 pints of various jams
  (raspberry, peach, blueberry, and strawberry) 
which added to the left over jars of apple jelly and pear jam I had from last canning season.
18 pints Salsa
11 pints Apple Pie Filling
1 pint pickled Banana Peppers
23 Quarts + 11 Pints of Applesauce

Next week I plan on canning some stew for the winter and possible some pie pumpkin.

Good for you! While the bottles 'look' so cute up on top, you should put them in a dark place. All bottled food does better when not exposed to light. As a newly wed 25 years ago, my heart sank when my mother told me to do this! Not only did I love the old fashioned look of having them in my kitchen, I was so PROUD of my homemaker skills! ;)

Lol. I know. I've been told before to put them down, but seriously I don't have anywhere to put them. My house is small I have no basement, no extra rooms. I don't even have a pantry. So unfortunately until we have a bigger place, they'll stay.
Thanks though.
