Canning

Besides new grandbaby activities,
(oh my, we are both asleep!)

this is what I have been up to lately.

Canning, canning, canning.

This week I made 10 pints of blueberry lime jam.

I turned a few piles of these...


into Dill Pickles.

Yumm!
Oh, how I love preserving summer's bounty
to enjoy the rest of the year.

The first picture is precious. I wished that I had your bounty for making jam, etc. I am not a dill pickle person, but the jam sounds scrumptious.

I love canning! Maybe not standing over a hot stove while it's in the 90's but the results are just so worth it. So far I canned bread and butter pickles and tomato sauce, but there are many more things I want to can. That blueberry lime jam sounds great! We are actually off to pick blueberries this weekend since our bushes aren't producing yet...
