Last month our new peach and Apricot got some fruit on it and I did not want to freeze them so I decided to make some jam and syrup. Then I decided to make some salsa.
Well one of our church members brought me over a ton of canning jars and then the next day he brought me over a huge bag of plums, so you now what I did, I made plum jam. Yesterday I was in my back yard and the apple trees we planted about six years ago that at the time our new dog chewed to the ground. We ended up pulling one up and just left the other one there. Well our three foot apple tree was full of some small to medium apples, so I decided to make some apple-butter with half of them also.
I would love to live on a farm some place out in the middle of nowhere and just grow all my own food and do a lot of canning, we are talking about getting some chicken to raise for eggs, I am a little worried about our neighbors and the smell. All the time I have been around chickens there was always a horrible smell. I should read up on how to keep chickens without the smell. LOL
. I enjoy canning it is very relaxing. Sometimes I think I was born at the wrong time.
