If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time you know I love to can. Usually I make jams.
Last year I made refrigerator garlic dill pickles. I made a couple of jars of them a few weeks ago.
Canning is something I have enjoyed doing for many years and I am so happy to see how main stream it has become in the last few years.
The first thing I ever made was blackberry jam back in 1989 while we were living in Georgia. I picked wild blackberries a couple of years in a row.
I’ve got a great story about my blackberry picking days in Georgia if you’d like a chuckle or a shriek.
This year National Can It Forward Day is July 14th . Are you planning to host a canning party? Are you planning to catch some of the live events or watch online? I’d love to hear what your plans are.
