Anyone have some suggestions? I love trying new canning recipes. Thanks!
A friend mentioned his wife made apple relish. I've not tried it, but I'd suggest googling for it.

I bet you can google it and find one that would be a start. Then you can adjust to your liking.

Went shopping yesterday, the romas were the highest they have been all year or maybe ever at the Mexican market, there they are always the cheapest. So, it is time to call my 2014 canning season closed. It is ok though, today we went to our new farm and tractor store to check our tomato cages for next season. They were on sale 60% off. We bought 8 of them and are now dreaming of our 2015 garden and canning days.

Had some apples given to me. I've done 28 quarts of pie filling in the last few days. Got another 10-15 yet to finish up.

I also tried to make some peach jelly and it turned out like my jalapeno jelly...just a thick syrup. Not sure what I'm doing wrong with my jelly.

How about some recipes for canned soup? Anyone got some good ones? I had some 1/2 gallon jars given to me. I understand you don't want to do a thick soup in one..but I may try some soup in some.

Pancake party!

Small comfort, I know ... I've tried jelly before and failed almost every time, too. But I keep on trying, and keep on making pancake syrup! Which is not a bad thing, really.

Default So, I opened my pickles today ...

and they're not bad. Too salty, and I can taste the apple cider vinegar. So I'll probably try a different recipe next year, using white vinegar and less salt!

But the dill/garlic flavor is pretty good.

All in all, I'm not too disappointed for my first try.

That is the important factor congrats. Sitting here trying to think I don't think I've ever used apple cider vinegar in pickles.

If it makes you feel any better and it seems you are doing just fine, I am guessing it took me about 5 years to get the exact flavor and firmness I really wanted. Now, I can them with my eyes closed or almost. I use very little salt and yes, white vinegar. Good luck and glad they turned out, as least edible. Nothing is worse than going to all the work of canning and have it turn out a disaster. I know, in my 50 years of canning I have had my share. The worst is when jams and jellies turn out having the consistency of Vaseline only thicker.

I ate the garlic cloves from the pickle jar -- OMG, was that ever good!
