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.

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.

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!

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.

Photos From the Food in Jars Flickr Pool + Marmalade Winner

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

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.

Pears, pears, pears

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?).

Cranberry/Orange Chutney

It looks like wyld lil is getting ready for Thanksgiving with a batch of cranberry and orange chutney. I really should be following suit! I’m entirely unprepared for the holiday next week.

Garden Grub 118

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!

Last pint of marmalade...

Joy’s last jar of marmalade. Good thing citrus season approaches!

Steamy Apple Pie Filling

Steamy apple pie filling, made by Angela. This one thing that’s still on my to-do list for this year. Must get some apples!

Rendered and cooled leaf lard

Christina at My Homespun Home tackles rendering leaf fat into usable lard. It looks so gorgeous and creamy.

Pumpkin Maple Spread

Ooo. Pumpkin maple spread, made by Hannah. Check the recipe on her blog, Home Baked (though remember, because pumpkin is a low acid food, spreads like this cannot be canned by any method).

Juneberry Aigre-Doux

Finally, some very photogenic juneberry aigre-doux from Erielle. So pretty. You should also make sure to check out her blog, Fancy Toast. It is delightful.

The winner of the FreshTECH Jam and Jelly Maker is Pat (commenter #26). She says:

I mainly use the stovetop for my canning/jamming efforts, though my favorite apple butter recipe that uses NO added sugar, just some Italian prune plums to sweeten, is dynamite when cooked down in the crockpot. After it’s sufficiently thickened, it goes into the hot water bath so there again I’m using the stovetop. So, I’ll need to learn more about this new method, and would love to be a winner of one! Thanks for the opportunity.

Pat, your apple butter sounds fabulous! Thanks for all the great comments you’ve left on the blog!
