Just about every week, I flip through the recent submissions in the Food in Jars Flickr pool and feature a few jar-and-canning-themed photos that are interesting, impressive, seasonal or pretty. Fancy cameras or professional skills are not required and Instagram photos are always welcome!
Apple cider syrup from Teela. She writes the lovely blog My So-Called Modern Life. This is one of my favorite things to make when cider is in the markets. A few jars in the pantry means that a mug of hot cider is never far away.
It’s a pear party from Lynn! She made quarts of preserved pear halves, pear vanilla jam (one of my favorites!), and a batch of pear hazelnut jam (I wonder if this just has bits of chopped hazelnut strewn throughout?).
I saved the most jaw-dropping for last. Check out the shelves of preserves that sisters Eleanor and Liz have made this season. Make sure to click over to the photo on Flickr to see the complete list of items they’ve made this year. Well done, you two!

Time for our Marmalade winner! Random.org drew #96 out of its digital hat of numbers. That means the winner is Susan, who said, “I’ve trying making a few marmalades, some successful, some not so much. I add the not so much ones to my morning oatmeal to sweeten it. Would love the book so I can improve my techniques.”
Susan, I hope the book helps you take your marmalade making to a whole new level!
