Peach Butter and Pickles

Just a quick post to give you a peek at my canning for the past few weeks. About 3 weeks ago, I made a batch of sour cherry jam and no-sugar-added mixed berry jam, but unfortunately forgot to take a pic before putting it in the basement for storage. This weekend, we took the over-ripe […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce – 7/14/07
