A pretty wave of home canning from Liz. Her blog is the very lovely Bubble Tea for Dinner.

I do get quite the thrill from seeing the canning you’ve all done. This one is from Flickr user cartera11. Gorgeous!

Caitlin bought the pattern for the Jars To Go tote from A Tiny Forest and made several for her own use and gifting. Love it! And, did you guys see that Kim came out with a four jar version of the tote? It’s awesome!

Thanks to all of you who took the time to share your jar labeling strategies. Please know that there’s no shame in simply scribbling the jar’s contents and date made on the lid of the jar with a Sharpie. It’s what I do most of the time. I only go for fancy labels when I really want to make a pretty present. So don’t feel bad!

That said, time for our winner. It’s Peggy, #259. She blogs at Pig Logs and ‘taterberries. Congratulations Peggy!

Photos from the FiJ Flickr Group + Fillmore Container Giveaway Winner

Pears in vanilla syrup

I’m back from a whirlwind weekend in Washington, D.C. I am so appreciative that so many of you guys took time out of your weekend to come to the demos at the US Botanic Garden to watch me make jam. Thank you, thank you!

We’re firmly in harvest time and that means that there are some WONDERFUL photos landing in the Food in Jars Flickr pool. Here are a few (and at the bottom of the post, the winner of the Fillmore Container giveaway is revealed!).

This first photo comes from Christina who blogs at My Homespun Home. She canned up pears in vanilla syrup. Yum!

2012canning-web

This next image is a visual inventory of the canning that Shauna did this summer. She reflects on her summer of canning at her blog, Eating With S.O.L.E. I am so impressed by her organization!

Sahuaro and jalapeno pickles

Pickled peppers from Lacey, who blogs at Thyme on My Side. It reminds me that I have some peppers in my crisper that may have already turned to mush. Here’s hoping there are few in there that I can salvage!

applesauce

Applesauce in pint and a half jars! I still just love seeing this size jar in use out there in the wild. This photo comes to use from Lynn, who’s Flickrstream is bursting with preserve-y goodness.

cinnamon maple sunflower seed butter

This last image is of the cinnamon maple sunflower seed butter that Stephinie made and posted about on her blog, Gypsy Forest. She was inspired by the recipe that Heidi posted on 101 Cookbooks, which was in turn inspired by the recipe in my cookbook. I love it when it works out like that!

solo four ounce jar

Fillmore Container giveaway winner time! Many thanks to all who entered and took the time to share how you’d put these smooth-sided four-ounce jars to work in your own households! The winner is commenter #804, Emily. She said,

Those are great jars! I think I’d use them for jam, because I’m the only one in my house who likes jam and I always like to have a variety of flavors, but have a hard time eating a big jar of jam before it goes bad. :) You’re right that they’d also be perfect for spices.

If you didn’t happen to win this giveaway, I have good news for you. Fillmore Container was so impressed by the number of you that turned out for the giveaway that they’ve decided to do it again over on their blog this week.

All you have to do is check out the many jars they sell and leave a comment on their site, sharing which size jar you’d most like to try in your kitchen. If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll get a case of those jars to use. Head on over and enter for another opportunity to win jars!

Photos from the Food in Jars Flickr Pool – Kumquats and More

It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I pulled together a post featuring photos from the Food in Jars Flickr pool, but that doesn’t mean that there’s not an world of goodness in there. Even during these quieter canning months, so many of you have been making lovely preserves. Here are a handful of the prettiest!
kumquat-habanero marmalade

Rebecca from the blog Cakewalk made a batch of glowing kumquat habanero marmalade. Aren’t those perfect circles of sliced kumquat gorgeous!

marmalade

Sweet-tart marmalade made using green lemons by Jennifer. I love her preserving blog. It’s called Putting By and you should add it to your feed reader.

Spiced Kumquats from Cheap Beets food blog

Spiced kumquats! These pretty little guys were made by Sarah who blogs (with her sisters) at Three Clever Sisters. The recipe can be found here.

more tomatoes

Though here in Philadelphia, we’re about as far removed from tomato season as you can get, over in Australia, they’re harvesting like crazy. Here’s the preserving work of Flickr user and Aussie rastis100. Aren’t those jars and bottles terrific?

Sweet Success

Finally, a few small jars of homemade maple syrup from Susy at Chiot’s Run. The volume of gardening and food preservation work she does is so inspiring!

Sunday Night From the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

Once a week, I take a break from showing off my preserves and give my readers a chance to shine by featuring a few photos from the Food in Jars Flickr group. Here are a few pretties from the last week or two. If you’d like to see your photo featured here, please head over to Flickr, join the group and add your images

Mandarin Marmalade with Chili and Ginger

Flying Biscuit Cranberry Apple Butter

Flying Biscuit Cranberry Apple Butter from Elizabeth. If it sounds good to you, she posted the recipe right there along with the picture, so click over to give it a gander.

this week {2}

Candied kumquats from Gypsy Forest. I can’t stop thinking about how good these must be stirred into yogurt.

bachelor's jam fruit

A beautiful batch of boozy Bachelor’s Jam from Rebecca at Cakewalk. Every year, I mean to start a batch of this and every year, I forget. Next year, for sure.

Ginger Squash Butter

Creamy Ginger Squash Butter (for the fridge only) from Sara May, The Cozy Herbivore. I need to get another squash.

Sunday Night from the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

Though it’s been a few weeks since I’ve managed to do it, most Sunday nights, I take a break from showing off my preserves and give the rest of you a chance to shine by featuring a few photos from the Food in Jars Flickr group.

Do Chua (Vietnamese Carrot and Daikon Pickle)

A carrot and daikon pickle from the Sticky Gooey Chef. Such amazing colors!

easy apple butter

Easy apple butter from Yossy at the Apt. 2B Baking Company. Nothing tastes so much like fall as an apple preserve.

Pumpkin Butter

2011 Two Dogs Cannery!

A fun little glimpse of what’s in the pantry at Two Dog Cannery! That’s some good looking sauerkraut you’ve got there!

kimchi

I love the depth of field on this kimchi-in-the-making, though I’m not certain whether the picture belongs to Kamut Flake Girl or Cloud Scapes.

Rainbow of Jars

A rainbow of canning jars from Jeanetics. Make sure to click over to her blog Urban Pioneer Story, as this photo is her header image. So fun!
