Nice list, Peg!

I'm planning to purchase plums on sale today and will make a double batch of Asian Plum Sauce this weekend! Will be my first canning session of the year! :)

In the last couple weeks I have canned stock... ham, beef, chicken, and venison, as well as kidney beans.

All this talk of canning makes me want to get out in my Yellow Rose Cottage and can a small batch of something.

Peg - I have canned beans two different ways. The first way is to just put dry beans, salt, and hot water, then cook while canning, basically. The second way is to actually soak, then cook the means and then can them. The second process is MUCH longer, but everyone here definitely prefers them done that way!!!

Jaime your Asian Plum Sauce sounds yummy.

I found a recipe for Bitter Citrus Marmalade I like in my Preserving Italy book. Thinking about making it sometime soon. The recipe calls for saving the seeds as you work; put seeds in cheesecloth & tie with kitchen twine; add to pot. Citrus seeds contain lots of pectin, which will help to set the marmalade. The recipe doesn't call for Sure-Jell. Since some oranges are seedless or have few seeds I will save lemon seeds.

Sara, I had to laugh at the citrus seed bit, as the recipe I used also called for cooking with seeds in a cheesecloth. The oranges I used didn't have one seed. It also didn't call for Sure-Jell or any other jelling agent, which is fine with me. After a couple hours of cooking it had a little too much liquid, but I ran a few cups of the mixture through a sieve which helped a lot. Disposed of the extra liquid and put the pulp back into the pot.

I would love to hear more about what a citrus marmalade consists of. Is it grapefruit, oranges, lemons, limes and tangerines?

I read that orange marmalade is good to use for Orange Chicken, or in our case it will be tofu or saitan (textured vegetarian protein), I have never used it before but willing to give it a try.

Jaime here's a link to a site for lemon seed pehttp://www.thekitchn.com/jam-makers-tip-save-lemon-seeds-for-homemade-pectin-194003ctin

Jaime, the recipe is more than I want to type so if you will e-mail me your snail address I will copy it and mail it today.

I like orange or any citrus marmalade in sweet & sour dishes. It's very good with rice or on top of cream cheese with crackers.

Today I am starting oil asparagus pickles from my Preserving Italy cookbook. No canning - will last in fridge up to three months if kept covered with olive oil.

One bunch of asparagus yielded 1 1/2 pints and 1/2 pint of leftover olive oil with red pepper flakes. The olive oil was only heated to warm so it will be great for cooking. The asparagus will sit on counter for 48 hours; check each day to make sure asparagus is covered with oil; after 48 hours put in fridge.

Today I am prepping for cantaloupe jam and watermelon rind pickles. Will fill my electric water bath canner today and hope to start canning the jam in the morning. Pickles in the afternoon.

Sounds relish Sara! I haven't pulled my canner out the last couple weeks. The Farmers Market just opened back up, so this Saturday we are going towhead there and see what we find. I'm looking forward to checking it out! It is actually inside a building, which will be different for us, as we are use to the open market in SC. I'm hoping there will be lots of things there... and give us the opportunity to meet some more of the locals!

I'm starting to get the canning bug! Before you know it it will be time to go pick strawberries here - I'm planning on making at least 1 batch of jam, maybe two. I freezer the rest mostly.

Shannon the beets and carrots came from our Farmer's Market. I hope you find a lot of good things at yours.

Jaime, when the canning bug strikes the only cure I know of is to read a canning book or ready your supplies for that first batch. Happy strawberry picking and jam making.

Chicken broth for my mom
Sara, where did you see cantaloupe jam at? Hubs loves cantaloupe, and IGA has them 3 for $5 this week.

Lisa, Your mom is a lucky woman to have home canned broth.

The recipe is from BH&G Canning Mag from 2015. I'll copy and mail it out today. Great price on the cantaloupes. I bartered with Linda 'Quiltee' and she liked it so that makes two who thinks it's good - her and me.

In marked down bin today I found two pkgs of cut up cantaloupe for $1.50 each. Will make jam tomorrow. The recipe calls for vanilla beans but I am out so I will use my homemade vanilla flavoring and vanilla sugar. Guess it's time to order more vanilla beans.

Canning today: Cantaloupe jam and cantaloupe pickles. Jam is done and all sealed. yield 4 half pints.

The pickles will stand in vinegar spice mixture for two hours so at 11a.m. I'll continue with the recipe. I like recipes where I get to rest between steps.

I learned another lesson today on trying to save time and energy while canning in Yellow Rose Cottage. I decided not to drain the electric canner and reuse the water. That would be okay for a day or two but it was two weeks before canning again - this morning - and there was mold around the water line so I had to drain it and sterilized it with straight white vinegar - and refill. One thing about lessons learned the hard way you never forget them.
