Canning 2011!

Alright. It was really handy to have a list of what I did last year to go back to so I’m going to keep it here again.

Rhubarb:
Tigress in a Jam’s Rhubeena
– 4.5 lbs rhubarb = 4.5 pints rhubeena
 Yummy. Good in ginger ale so far!

Rhubarb Strawberry Jam (CFNG)
-2 batches (12 cups rhubarb, 6 strawberries. Needed 3 clam shells of strawberries)
-Each batch yielded 4 half pints
SO yummy!! I love rhubarb strawberry jam.

Rhubarb Orange Jam (CFNG)
-1 batch (9 cups rhubarb, 2 oranges)
-7 half pints
Yummy. Make in small jars, kind of strong.


Asparagus:
Pickled Asparagus &; Asparabits (Well Preserved)
-did approx 8lbs into 7 pints of pickled asparagus & 3 pints of asparabits
– used red thai chili peppers for spice
– could not find yellow mustard seed so used brown
-dad, brother, and husband say not spicy enough, add more than one pepper.



Cherries:
Cherries in light syrup

-5lbs of cherries into 5 pints and 2 half pints
-they are alright, they taste good but they are too much work to bother with again.

Apricots
Honey-Ginger Apricots (Canning for a New Generation)
-5lbs apricots into 6 pints
-left out the ginger


Beets
Pickled Beets & onions (Bernardin)
-bought 4 bags of baby beets from farmer’s market but, only got 4.5 pints though.
-note for next year: buy more beets than you think you need. May have to do more.


Tomatoes
Red Hot Sauce (Bernardin)
-used 2 habaneros,  2 serranos, 2 thai chilli peppers, and the rest jalapenos. Hubby says even more peppers next time.
-5 half pints and 2 quarter pints


Steak Sauce (Putting Up More)


Balsamic & Tomato Salsa (Putting Up More)
-2 pints and 9 half pints





Peaches
Butterscotch Peach Jam (Wellpreserved.ca)
-7 half pints
-this is SO yummy. It’s not really jam consistency but it’s perfect for pancakes and ice cream!!


-40lbs into 21 quarts in light syrup


Pluots
-1 batch pluot jam
-this is delicious. I love pluots though.. One batch made 2 pints, 2 half pints, and 8 125ml jars.
