    A couple days ago i found out that there are many canners on Smart Canucks! I understand how much hard work it is and wanted to give a place for us to not only show off some of our hard work but a place to inspire other canners to make something they may not have yet. So here we go with my pics... Please feel free to comment or jump on in and show us what you have been canning.

    Wow. Those look beautiful. I bet they taste great too! I can as well. I make crabapple juice each year from our tree in the front yard. It has the small red crabapples. But we mix the juice with some 7-up as its a bit thick to drink alone. And the kids just love it. I tried to make grape jelly this year but it didn't set up well
    I loved your idea on the pineapple jam. I am going to give that a shot. Thanks for the ideas and the wonderful pictures. Can't wait to see everyone elses

    First off... grape jelly that doesn't set up is called... grape syrup LOL! So you didn't loose anything there. This happens to everyone that cans from time to time and there are ways to stop it from happening. My mom had trouble setting up a few things until she increased the boiling time for the first boil with just the fruit juice and pectin in it. It is a altitude adjustment. Here in Calgary we go 1 min 30 seconds instead of one min and this corrects many set up issues. The second thing we do especially when doubling and tripling batches is called a gel test. You put a thick plate in the freezer before you start canning... when the jam or jelly is ready to come off the burner you put about a teaspoon on the plate and wait 30 second and run your finger through it (then you get to taste it before you can it too). If it is not setting at that point you add in a little extra pectin (1/4 to 1/2 the pack) and put it back on the burner and stir it on the heat until all of the pectin is desolved. We keep partial packs of pectin powder on hand for these occasions. That crabapple juice sounds so good!

    Love the canning pics! I will have to take some pics of what I've been up to this week (pears...). And it's funny that you mentioned the grape jelly not setting, because I have the same problems. Grape jelly is hit and miss with me, I think I will need to add more pectin next time. But we sure do like grape syrup in our oatmeal, lol.

    Here's what I canned this week- the very last of the pears in the orchard, Kieffers. I've never canned them before but the Bernardin book says that they are good for canning, so fingers crossed!

    I did 12 pints of canned pears in light syrup, and 5 half-pints of vanilla apple/pear sauce..

    Very nice! I thought of trying this out but wasn't in the plans--perhaps a good goal for 2013?!

    What is the advantage of this over buying cans of stuff? I'm guessing less preservatives etc.... because I cannot see it being that much cheaper to justify the labour involved.

    I find the big difference is taste. It has been years since I have eaten a store bought jam or pickles or pie filling. You get so use to making your own and the flavour is just delicious that when you are some where are are served store bought jam etc, I find it has no flavour.


    I will have to post some pics tomorrow, I spent the beginning of this week making a couple batches of Chili con carne
