In early October, my friend M and I got together to do some more canning (she and I made the salsa together, too).
This time, we made dilly beans! Again, we got our canning recipe from this book. We ended up with 10 pints. I haven't opened one up yet, so I don't know how they turned out, but if they're anything like the other recipes from this book they're going to be delicious!
Then last weekend, my friend A and I got together to make raspberry jam. We made it together last year, as well. We both have raspberry bushes in our yards, so we pick over the summer and freeze a bunch of the raspberries.
Then we can make our jam in one big batch, instead of a bunch of small ones during the summer.
We ended up with 46 half-pints! Yum!
Last year, I decorated most of my jars of jam to give as gifts:
A and I will be getting together again soon to package our jam up for this year!
