Once again – my family had a canning exchange and once again – I am amazed at the creativity and talent of my aunts and cousins – grandma too! This year’s bounty included pork and beans, savory rice mix, blue berry jam, applesauce, apple pie filling and even some zucchini relish. One of my aunt’s recipes was very detailed and precise. It included directions to your local farmer’s market to obtain some bottles of jam. It’s so fun to get together with these ladies – and learn from them. Looking forward to next year!
