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.

Sunday Night from the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

Most Sunday evenings, 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.

simple pickled peppers

An array of vinegar pickled peppers from Emily. So glad to hear you like my unfancy pickled pepper method!


Giardiniera from Erin, just part of the 133 jars of preserves she’s canned this year! Well done, Erin!

Gooseberry jam will be EXTERMINATED.

Sarah‘s jam, posing with a toy dalek. Any Doctor Who reference is fine by me!


This groaning table of preserves is just in a weekend’s work for SaraJane. I am so impressed!

Linda Z.'s roasted red peppers

Rebecca finally got her hands on a copy of Linda Ziedrich’s The Joy of Pickling and already has put it to good work. These look fabulous!

This is why I keep the peach boxes

Peach boxes, full of Ginger Vanilla Peach Jam made by the redhead. Looks like you’re ready for winter!
