There must be some lovely people who enjoy canning here! Do you have any favorite recipes? How long have you been canning? Who taught you? I just picked it up last year. My mother canned, but I never much paid attention (being a teen when she started), but have since then taught myself. I hope to get a pressure canner soon so I can put up some vegetables from my garden this year! I will share my favorite spiced plum butter recipe as soon as I can find it. It's divine for giving as gifts during Christmas! And it makes your house smell heavenly.
