Hello friends and happy summer! Considering the wonderful abundance of fresh produce available during this wonderful warm season,  I’ve put together a fun recipe roundup for you today, highlighting my favorite Canning and Preserving Recipes. There are several jam recipes, a killer salsa recipe, a wonderful spaghetti sauce recipe and even a hot fudge recipe that can be frozen in little pint sized jars. You didn’t imagine I could write an entire post on preserving and canning and leave that little chocolate number out, did you? Chocolate and I have a little thing going, friends. 🙂

If you haven’t ever tried canning before, choose one of these and give it a try this season! It can be a lot of fun and ever so rewarding.

If you have a great canning or preserving recipe that you love and would like to pass it along to me, I would love it! You can contact me through this link.


Homemade Raspberry Jam from frozen berriesHomemade Jam from Frozen Berries
 make jam from frozen berries regularly. Frozen raspberries and blueberries are often cheaper than buying the berries fresh. Also, I often run out of homemade jam in the middle of the winter when fresh berries aren’t available, so making them from frozen berries means homemade jam even in the winter. 🙂 Please don’t miss the fact that making jam in the winter means your kitchen will be nice and cool.

  1. Ah, that peach syrup recipe is still on my list to try. Our baby peach tree finally blossomed this year, but I had to strip off all the tiny peaches (missed a few, they’re hard to see) because the little tree is too young to be pregnant. Next year for sure!
