This weekend has been absolutely ridiculous, in such a good way. It felt like a beautiful fall day, even though it’s only early August. Early August also means plenty of produce coming to fruition in the garden, and wild berries in the fields. From the tomatoes, to the peppers, to the blackberries – it’s all coming in.
This plethora of produce means only one thing: canning! I had quarts and quarts of wild blackberries that the Fiance and I have picked over the last couple weeks (with more to come), as well as some Maine blueberries my Dad gave us. Add in some super clearance strawberries which were just begging to be jammed and I was off. Add in some zucchini and cucumbers and that makes for a lot of canning in one weekend! The following was made:
- 6 Jars Blackberry-Strawberry Jam
- 5 Jars Blackberry-Blueberry Nutmeg Jam
- 7 Jars Dill Pickles (cucumber)
- 7 Jars Bread & Butter Pickles (Zucchini)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Fall is right around the corner, and there is nothing like it for me here in Maine. Have a great week everyone!
