Last night I made strawberry rhubarb jam! I made some last year, but only put it in the fridge. This year I doubled the recipe and put them into pints (because we eat so much) and canned it.

Since I had some left over strawberries I'm making a simple syrup for strawberry milk. Can this be canned?

Krista, your jam is beautiful. Yes, you can can strawberry syrup. The kids would love having it in the pantry.

Sara, if you don't mind, can you share with me what I would need to do? Is the syrup of just strawberries, sugar, and water good? Or does it need other stuff to make it shelf stable?

Krista, I have always made a simple syrup with equal parts sugar and water. For each cup of water add one cup of sugar. The amount of water would depend on the amount of juice from the crushed strawberries. If you don't need to add water, then add the sugar to the strawberry juice. Add the juice of one small to medium lemon. Should be enough sugar to make it shelf stable.

Bring syrup to a boil for 4 minutes; add lemon juice; and follow canning procedure. Can for 10 minutes in a water bath canner.

Krista, I forgot to say the amount of juice or water depends on how thick you want the syrup.

Your jam looks delicious, Krista!

I canned some beef to work on getting the freezer cleaned out.

This morning I canned 7 pints of Jaccob's Cattle heirloom beans and happy to say they all sealed. You can read the story of the speckled and solid brown cattle in Genesis 30. The beans have a few of the solid brown ones but mostly they are speckled just like in the Biblical story. The one thing I don't like about the unusually marked heirloom beans is once cooked they lose their colorful marks and Jaccob's Cattle heirloom bean now looks like a red bean, a pretty red bean but no marks.

Interesting about those beans. I can the usual beans, black, great northern, kidney, chili, pinto. I think that is all. I did make a black bean and corn salad/dip type recipe that was pretty good. You eat it with chips.

Michelle, I have had that salad before and it is very good. Also have had it with black eyed peas.

Canned 7 pints Mayocoba heirloom beans today and they all sealed. It's a Mexican yellow bean, now grown in California, and in the pinto bean family. A good soup bean.
