Photos from the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

Each Saturday, 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. Here are this week’s selections.

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.


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?

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.


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

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.

Sunday Night From the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

Every Sunday evening, 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. 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.

Canning supplies coming together from TinyAcorn. See how she put those jars and tomatoes to good use here.

pickle jones hit me

Washed okra, ready for pickling from Bridgman Pottery. I do love pickled okra (so much so that I made four pints of it during last night’s hurricane. Someone on Twitter coined the practice of putting up during the storm Hurricanning).

Apt. #2

From the description of the photos, from left to right these jars contain, “Sweet Apple Cider Pickled Beets, Dill Pickles, Marinated Red Peppers & Bread n’ Butter Zucchini Coins.” They are the hard work of Jess at Preserving Beauty.

Raspberry and Razzleberry Jam

Raspberry and Razzleberry jam by Mama Urchin. See the story of how she came to possess just so many raspberries here.


An impressively stocked wall of preserves, all made by Jessica. Descriptions of much of what you see there can be found here.

Homemade cola syrup! Perfect for the soda lover who wants a slightly more virtuous approach to their daily tipple. By Krista, who blogged all about it here.
