I have been to 3 farm markets in the last week. Cannot get enough of fresh greens and produce. Living upstate New York in the Hudson Valley, there are so many wonderful farms around. With all that said, what do you do with all that you bring home?? Can all you can. I found this great image for advertising canning jars in the 1940′s, when having a garden at home was part of the way of life. I made a matchbox with this graphic image, great for a hostess gift this time of year.
As canning will be on so many peoples mind, head on over to my friends Margaret’s site A Way to Garden for a chance to win some Weck canning jars, these are on my list to add to my collection this year.
What is your favorite thing to can? Mine is peach chutney and whole peaches. As I was hunting around the internet I also found this great site dedicated to canning, Food in Jars, there are wonderful recipes and tip that Marisa gives.
I love to open up a jar of anything I put up last year in the dead of winter, it is like opening up a can of summer.
