Lisa I love trying new beans. I have less than a cup left over from canning so they're on top of the stove now so when done I will know if they are a keeper or not.

Let us know how your experiment with the used lids turns out. Cranberries and applesauce sounds good. Happy canning.

I have 4 pints split pea soup with smoked pork chops in pressure canner. Soup turned out delish and Annie and I had leftovers from canning for breakfast. That dog loves any kind of soup.

Hi everyone,

I hate to ask because it may be a Canning 101 big no no but has anyone made jam from frozen fruit like blackberries etc.?

I have only canned jam with fresh fruit but this time of year fresh is hard to find. I have a long weekend and have been in a jam making mood. Thanks for any advice.

Nancy - A few months back I did a combo of fresh fruit (apples and pears) and frozen fruit (peaches, pineapples and mixed berries) to make a great tasting mixed fruit jam.

Sara - Pea soup sounds wonderful and some day I will get up the nerve to try my new pressure cooker. Is a pressure cooker hard to use?

Last weekend I made onion jam for the first time and I am happy to report that I will repeat this recipe again and again.

Jana, I pressured canned the soup. Did you mean pressure cooker or canner? With my pressure canner the directions weren't real clear so it took me a little bit to know what I was doing. Once I figured it out it's been easy for me. I have a small 10 qt pressure canner. Don't know about the bigger ones.

Oops, yes I meant pressure canning. I have watched a few canning videos on using one but have yet to try it.

Thanks Jana,
Got the day off and as you know the weather is damp outside. A perfect day for canning jam in So. Cal.

I was given a plastic grocery bag of green beans and one of Roma tomatoes. Today I pressured can 4 pints green beans and tomato mix. One of my favorite veggie combos.

I pulled out the last of the beets from my winter garden and I am currently canning them, five jars of sliced pickled beets and five jars of chunk pickled beets. This week I am also going to make a batch of chunky applesauce.

Well I do not can but my new stove has a built in dehydrator and i am dehydrating some blackberries, so, I can put currants on my salads. Does that count?

I can't speak for everyone Beverley, but I would say yes dehydrator counts. I think anything you create to store long term should count.

By the way dehydrated blackberries sounds wonderful!

Beverly, look for the thread sharing about what you are drying! Its fun to share!

I am SO happy with my pickled beets I put up last summer! They make the best green salads with crumbled Gorgonzola...mmmmmm! I did some with rosemary and some classic, and I really prefer the classic ones. Jana, let me know what else you do with yours when you open a can.

Sara your beet salad sounds yummy. I like pickled beets on a platter with cheese, olives, pickles, crackers and I could go and on but I won't. You got the idea a platter of nibbles.

This morning I pressured canned 4 qts soup mix - carrots, potatoes, celery, onions, leeks, tomato broth made with store can tomato sauce, and fresh bay leaf.

In the coming weeks I hope to can up all my dry beans because gardening season is a coming and when I'm potting & watering plants I'm not canning. (as much) lol

Spring is coming and we all will be busy outside, planting. That way we stay busy later, canning, freezing, and dehydrating. Sara, fresh bay leaf, that has to be so much better then dried?? Never tried fresh. Beverly, i usually get the juice from blackberries and make jelly. They are seedy for sure.

Pressure canning 4 pints Christmas lima beans this morning.

Michele I do like having fresh bay leaves at hand. It tolerates Texas hot summers if soil is kept moist and given afternoon shade but I do have to winter it over inside. Other than those requirements it's a easy plant to grow in container.

I am tempted to make flavored applesauce, I am trying to clear out some of the fruit in the freezer and thought I would try mixed fruit applesauce, peach applesauce and cranberry applesauce. Has anyone else tried something like this and if so, how did it go?

Jana that sounds so yummy. Applesauce is one of the first things I learned to make in Home Ec. In Jr high. If you can applesauce do you treat it like any other water bath canning project?

Woke up this morning. It was drizzly. Went to the salon and got a cup of tea, a head and arm massage, a shampoo and trim. Went to the craft store to get cotton yarn for a washcloth set I want to make. THEN, I made 6 jars of blackberry jam. Can't eat it until Tuesday though. I had endodontic surgery on Friday. The stitches don't come out until Tuesday. Now I am resting with a hot cup of cider, yum! Oh. and I used frozen blackberries. Hope it turns out ok.

Nancy - pretty jars and I know it'll taste good too.

Jana let us know how your flavored applesauce turns out. I like hearing about how to do the same old thing in a different way.

Canning 4 pints Midnight black beans - turtle black bean.

Nancy - Blackberry Jam looks beautiful!!! It makes me think of the book "If You Give a Moose a Muffin"! DS loves that book!

Jana - I have made cherry cinnamon applesauce and strawberry applesauce before and really liked them both. I'll have to look for recipe I used. It was one off of someone's blog instead of an official recipe book which always makes me nervous. I changed the recipe slightly by adding lemon juice to it too - even though my googling said I shouldn't HAVE to, I did add small amount anyway. No issues - I think we've eaten all but a few jars at this point - :)

I'd like to make it again this year but wanted to find a Ball recipe or something more official to use. Have you found anything yet or still looking?

Sara - Love the name of your beans! Is that the type of beans you're using or the name of the recipe?

It's the name of the type of black bean - it's on the pkg of dried beans.

Thank you Sara and Jaime. Just wish I could taste it now. I have to wait until after I see the Endodontist Tuesday afternoon and get the stitches out. Nothing with seeds until then.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is my understanding that when canning fruits with high sugar content you are pretty safe, the sugar does the preserving. So if that is true, and knowing that I can process apples, peaches or cherries without worry, it seems logical that you could mix any of them in a puree and process successfully, no?

And to Nancy, yes, applesauce processes in a water bath. You can easily find a Ball recipe for instructions. Very easy!
I love that you transformed something from your freezer into something you can use from the shelf! Smart girl! I've thought about a thread sharing what we did with things from the freezer....YellowRose Sara?
