Fall to me is a time for family and friends and even a little apple juggling. Well at least my attempt at apple juggling. What I'm hoping will turn into an annual tradition with my sisters family we took on the task of canning 100's and 100's of apples and pears fresh off of her trees! It was a fun and rewarding experience and we had our share of wins and fails along the way! Jelly that didn't quire gel and what we have now affectionately dubbed the desert topping (jelly with waaaayyy to much sugar in the recipe) maybe next time we'll be better at it but for now good times and a great family to spend the harvest season with.
many of the recipes we attempted can be found at http://foodinjars.com/recipe-index/
We did learn if you plan to reduce the sugar in a recipe purchase a low sugar pectin otherwise you get fruit soup :)
Happy FALL and Happy CANNING!
