Canning Up my Utah Garden

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 |
Yesterday as I watched my two boys play in the yard I noticed how all my fruit and vegetables were producing for me! I quickly realized it is time to pull out the pressure cooker and jars to bottle and make jam! The problem is, I have NO idea how to do any of it! I am planning on having my mother in law help me, but I would love any tips that you have for me!
My plans are to:
green beans
hot peppers
green peppers

Make Jam from:

First I guess I need to shop smart for my jars and supplies. The best price I can see right now is
12 pint Kerr Jars for $6.37 and use my $3/2 case coupon from RP 4/26 making them $4.87 each. I think the best price I have seen on lids was $1.35 for 12.

Then I am looking for a couple recipes for blackberry or raspberry jam!
Can anyone help me? I am excited to try these new ways of preserving food! Wish me luck!

I did raspberry freezer jam at the beginning of the summer with the first crop of raspberries from my garden...yummmy and easy! I bought the Ball brand fruit pectin to mix in with the crushed raspberries, and there was a coupon in the box for .50/1 my next purchase of fruit pectin. Also, there is a coupon for .75 off two packages of Ball lids from RP-7/12.

The package of fruit pectin also included the recipe I used to make the jam, and points out that berries should be crushed by hand and not in a blender in order to maintain the best flavor.

WE love the freezer jam on the package of Pectin . 7 cup sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 2 c karo syrup, fruit. Pectin. mix it really well and make sure your sugar is dissolved. We LOVE It.

I made this recipe for raspberry jam yeserday and it turned out great

The best part was that it required no pectin and it turned out great! Just raspberries and sugar. It was super easy! Good luck!

Get a "Ball Blue Book of Canning". It has guidelines and recipes for everything under the sun. I love mine!

I prefer the sugar free (uses splenda) freezer jam. It tastes so much more like real fruit! Plus, it's lots healthier.
