Photos from the Food in Jars Flickr Pool

February 2, 2014(updated on October 3, 2018)

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.

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.

Sharing is caring!

  • I’m just thinking about trying some homemade mustard this month, so that one looks delicious. Thanks for including me!

  • Thanks for including my picture of the mustard! I could not believe how easy it was, especially once I figured out the proportions to fit perfectly in a wide-mouth quart jar. I also found an old recipe on your site with bourbon that I will definitely be trying soon!

  • I made some pear vanilla jam. It didn’t set up right. It’s more like syrup but that’s ok because it’s great in pancakes
