    Got a number of things bookmarked, but probably the most pressing is making some simple syrup and pickles from the bounty of mint and green tomatoes currently in my garden

    Okra….nothing better than a couple of jars of pickled okra to enhance the holiday table. Will make a couple of jars of mild and a couple of hot. Want to fry some this year for a different appetizer to serve with remoulade sauce.

    i have figs that I have frozen that need to be made into preserves and canned. I am waiting on a bit of relief from this heat- hence the reason they are frozen for now.

    Apple season is coming! I still need to put up apple butter and I need to get to the strawberry jam before it is too late. Here we have strawberries into late fall, so we are spoiled.

    We just did a big round with tomatoes — tomato jam, bruschetta in a jar, two kinds of hot sauce. So, still on my list is hot pepper jelly. And I’m intrigued by a carrot cake jam recipe in the Ball cookbook; I may try to get around to that, too. Thanks for the giveaway.

      Up to my eyeballs in tomatoes!! I have been canning tomatoes sauces every way I can. I’m ready to try tomato jam next.

    Jessica HZ says:

    My garden is having a rough summer. Just enough tomatoes to eat, but not enough to can. The cucumbers went kaput weeks ago, etc. I think the only thing I got was enough beets to make ginger pickled beets. Those were yummy. I just got a bushel of apples from a friend, so the thing I need to tackle is apple sauce and apple butter. I am tempted to try apple jelly this year, but don’t know if I’ll get to it.

    Christina says:

    I need to get some jalapenos preserved and definitely more pickles. Maybe beets too!

    I have tomatoes coming out my ears, so officially, they’re next on my list. However, I’m REALLY looking forward to making and canning applesauce! This will be the first year I’ve attempted applesauce, so I’m excited to try it.

    Right now I’ve got some beets waiting to be canned and maybe try something with zucchini other than making bread.

  36. 136
    Leah says:

    Still to can: Tomato sauce. Apple sauce. A second batch of apple butter. Maybe a third batch of tomato jam. Possibly some zucchini pickles if my plants don’t give up the ghost yet. I love canning season!

    Sara says:

    I’m just finishing tomatoes…the only thing left on my list is peach butter. I’ve done my usual peach cardamom jam and spiced peaches but there’s no such thing as too many peaches!!!

    Mary Ann says:

    It is all about tomatoes for me now too and trying to start water bath canning. I really need a lesson or 2! I have a gas stove and have read that the water bath pot should not be more than 4 inches (diameter) larger than your stove’s eye. That has me stymied!

    Dori says:

    Pick a peck of peppers. I have peppers coming on strong and need ideas of what to do with all of them. Yellow Wax Hots, Anaheims, and Jalapenos oh my. Tomatoes and greens beans are also on the list.

    Anita says:

    I’m looking forward to some pumpkin for the end of the season. I still have tomatoes going on for salsa and cucumbers, zucchini and squash for pickling.
