Canning, Canning, Canning!



Tayberry Raspberry Lemon Jam

If you would have asked me 10 years ago if I would be a big “canner” I would have told you probably not!  But I cannot get enough of it!  I started a few years ago and I just fell in love.  I remember my Mom canning when I was younger but I never really got into it then.  There is something so calming in the process.  And lets face it people.  The calmer the better around here!  I guess there are worse things I could be addicted to.  And I certainly don’t hear complaints from friends and family while enjoying the spoils!


Spiced strawberry butter.

I can’t believe it.

I truly cannot believe that 10 years has gone by since I married the best guy ever.  10 years!!!  I realized the other day that with the exception of a quick snapshot at Christmas time last year, we have not had a family picture taken since Brinlee was a baby…ahem.  So I begged Marge to stop acting like she was SO busy with running a household, taking care of the girls and bringing home a preemie and just take my family picture already!!!  Can’t tell you how glad I am that she did it!  Thanks marge, we love your guts.
