I have been having so much fun canning recently – Brandied Cherries, Holiday Cherries (sort of a sweet and sour, spicey and yummy concoction), Strawberry Conserve and Boozy Orange Marmalade. Both of the cherries recipes are from Canning for a New Generation by Liana Krissoff. The orange marmalade recipe is from Amy Pennington’s Urban Pantry. And I have a bunch of recipes marked to try in another wonderful canning book, Tart and Sweet by Kelly Geary and Jessie Knadler. These recipes are a far cry from the jellyfish-like peaches my mom put up.
I have all of my little jars of goodness on their own shelf in a cupboard. Yesterday I went to admire them more than once. With each viewing, I felt happy. It could be my new favorite stress reliever!
