Photos From the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

Each weekend, I dig through the Food in Jars Flickr pool and feature some of your photographs here in this space. If you’d like to see your hard work on the blog, please add your images to the group! And just so you know, Instagram and camera phone images are more than welcome (and it’s easy to set up your Instagram photos to feed to a Flickr account). Here are this week’s selections.

These jars of gorgeous spiced and pickled daikon radish come to us from Ilene of the Urban Canning Company.

Some pack a punch picante pickled carrots  from  Erin of Putting Up With Erin.

Could a preserve be any prettier? Mixed citrus marmalade from Rebecca at Cakewalk.

Last jam of the night: spiced blueberry.

A little spiced blueberry blast from the past! Take by Melissa from The Boastful Baker during  a late night canning session.

Pinto beans

We start this photo round-up with Angela’s home-canned beans. I have a post about just this technique scheduled for later this week, so if you’re intrigued by the idea of making your own canned beans from dried, stay tuned!

Some very pretty homemade applesauce, along with a serving suggestion (I do love the combination of oatmeal and applesauce!). This one comes to us from Meryl of My Bit of Earth.

Blend some more

Homemade mustard getting blended up (right in the jar!) from Christina of My Homespun Home. If you’ve not made your own mustard yet, I implore you to start. It’s so easy and transformative!

crabapple jelly

This image is from  Rebecca at Cakewalk and is of a batch of crabapple jelly that she made back in the the last summer. If you ask me, this is the sort of preserve that is most sustaining during the cold months – beautiful and delicious!

Check out that stack of dilly beans from Lindsay at The Wooden Nest! This by far my favorite pickle on earth and I love seeing them in such quantity.

The picture doesn’t say what exactly is in this jar, but I have a feeling that’s a batch of pear vanilla jam, which is one of my very favorite preserves! From Ilene of the Urban Canning Company.

Cinnamon Whiskey Jelly

Cinnamon whiskey jelly from Erin (she writes the blog Putting Up With Erin). It’s a combination of apple cider, bourbon, and cinnamon sticks and I only wish I could say that I’d thought of it first. I can’t stop imagining it with a sliver of crumbly, aged cheddar cheese.

365.25 - No more hiding under the bed.

I am just a little bit jealous of Melissa (who is also known as The Boastful Baker). She finally has a pantry big enough for her homemade preserves. Mine still live in random closets and under our bed.

apricot honey jam.

A gift of gorgeously hued apricot honey jam from Mostly Foodstuffs blogger Deena, to Cakewalk blogger Rebecca. I love what a small world it becomes thanks to the internet.

Sauced

Here’s a flashback to late summer tomatoes thanks to Christina of My Homespun Home. I’m about halfway through my own stash of tomatoes right now. How are the rest of you holding up with your home canned staples?

sauce day

For all of those in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s tomato season. Ock Du Spock has shared some photos of canning tomatoes in jars that once belonged to her grandparents.

Pickled Ginger

Elsewhere in the world, there is ginger to be pickled. Katvanb did a nice batch back in late summer, with a small slice of red beet to add color.

Pretty pickled peppers from Erin.

this summer's pickle project

Emily from Relishments made a whole heck of a lot of pickles this summer and managed to line them all up for a picture. Here’s hoping those will keep you in pickles for the year!

Susan made some asian pear butter that looks pretty darn lovely on that toast!

Looks like Meryl from My Bit of Earth has been making her own chai blend. It’s such a good drink for these chilly winter days.

Under Pressure

I think we’ve all been there, in the kitchen late at night, finishing off a canning project. This photo from Sharon evokes that moment and mood perfectly.

Photos From the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

I used to be in the habit of featuring photos from the Food in Jars Flickr pool here on the blog once a week. Then somehow along the way, that particular feature fell by the wayside. I really liked sharing reader photography here and so have decided to revive this column. If you have a photo of your jams, pickles, or other delicious things in jars, please do add it to the group (phone and Instagram photos are absolutely welcome!).

Christmas morning butter and jam by Meryl of My Bit of Earth.

Meat,canned

Who knew that canned venison, turkey breast, dark turkey meat, pork, and chicken breast could look so pretty. Nice hoosier cabinet, too! Photo by 7thswan.

Chocolate Pistachio Sables (6 of 6)

Chocolate pistachio sables in jars from Sara of Three Clever Sisters.

Homemade Honey from The Honey Man

Glowing honey in a jar from Ryan.

7941 dill pickles

Some very nice looking pickles from Karen at Short Story Long.

quince preserve

Finally, some quince preserves from Rebecca at Cakewalk. This photo was from a post she wrote about her 2013 preserving season, which I thought was a very good read. I always mean to write such posts, but I never seem to make the time.
