My daughter and I made 48 jars of jam

diced them- boiled w/the pectin/mixed in the sugar boiled againoh and we boiled up the pits and peels and strained  it for a different batch of jelly
after the boiling you fill the jars and put the lids on and transfer to the canning rack

Nice berries! I'm glad to see that there are still people out there canning. My mom canned everything when I was a kid and I am not sure any of my siblings do now. Becoming a lost art. Thanks for sharing! Here is my entry.

Absolutely beautiful fruit, mad into what I can only imagine as being perfect preserves

I didn't know that you could boil the skins and pits to make jelly. I really like jam better but "waste not want not." Is it just like you've made peach juice? how do you do it?

I love homemade jams! Terrific photos! I'm ready for a nice big biscuit and some of that jam! Terrific photos! Could almost smell it cooking! Have a great, tasty week, Marcia!

Great photos! A wonderful photo story of your cooking and canning, and you make it sound so simple. I like the composition of the fruit and the jars...and the peaches on the glass table top...

The ruby fruit allows for a pretty nice addition to bagels, toast and croissants. Such deep colors look tasty, too!

Oh, the strawberry season is over here. But I managed to make some strawberry chutney myself. Only I boil the jars first, then fill and close lids.

What a wonderful experience and skill to share with your daughter! Both of my grandmothers canned-- as far as I know none of their children did or do and I am the only grandchild that cans-- but it has been awhile. I'm about to tackle pepper jelly for the first time.

Looks yummy. Just before I had to leave my cabin I picked the last of my strawberries. They really produced this year. I would have had more, but that very morning the geese came by and ate all of the berries from one of my beds. The buggers! I still got four half pints, three canned and one for the fridge. That's plenty for the two of us to go with the blackberry jam I have left from last year. This year I plan to just can whole blackberries and juice. One more month and there will be as many as we have time to pick. - Margy

I can imagine the fruity smells, the steamy windows, the sound of the water bubbling around the jars, the suction to seal the lids to the glass. I remember my mother and grandmother canning various things, but I've never done it myself. I'm in awe of your endeavor.
