pickles 2009 006I have enjoyed seeing all the pictures in blogland of the canning that has been going on!  It is fun to see what others are canning ~ it really is inspiring!  Last Sunday our daughter and son-in-law came over and we made some pickles!  It is so rewarding now to see all the jars on the pantry shelf!

Do you have a favorite thing that you like to can for the winter?

Hoping you’re enjoying a blessed Tuesday!

  1. I see everyone is in canning mode. 🙂 Unfortunately, my cucumbers didn’t grow at all this year so no pickles for me!

  2. Hi Sharon ~

    Your pantry shelf looks so nice! It looks wonderful! To even make it better…you had your daughter and son-in-law to share in the canning! It makes for a special family time! Thanks for sharing!

    Hugs ~

  3. Your pickles look very yummy! My MIL used to can pickles. I used to can peaches every summer with my mother, but we haven’t done it for many years. We also made strawberry jam. We used to have fun doing it. I always enjoyed looking at the finished jars when we were through. Enjoy your pickles!

  4. It is funny how we call it bottling and you say canning! All my fruit and vegetables are going in the freezer or in jelly and chutneys this year.

  5. Hi Terri ~

    Yes, it does look like so many of us are canning! I am inspired by all you have done! Although we were only trying to grow regular cucumbers ~ something happened to ours too so we won’t have any from our own garden. We had to buy the ones to make our pickles! 🙂 Maybe next year!!

    Blessings on your day!

  6. Hi Teri ~

    Thank you! It is fun to open the pantry door and see the pickles there! Those are the simple pleasures that make me smile! It was nice to be able to do the canning with Seth and Annaleah! Of course, we got to enjoy some time with Benjamin too which is always a blessing!

    Enjoy your day,

  7. Hi Elizabeth ~

    That is interesting about the different terms ~ canning/bottling. I think bottling actually makes more sense! 🙂 It is so nice to be able to freeze things up for the winter time too! I have never tried making chutney myself, but I have had some homemade chutney and it was delicious!

    Sweet blessings, Elizabeth!

  8. Hi Sharon, Loved getting caught up with you. No canning for me ths summer but typically we can peaches, apricots and sometimes pears. Never tried vege’s-they intimidate me. Be blessed today. Hugs, Noreen

  9. Hi Noreen ~

    How nice to visit with you today!:)

    My husband and I used to can peaches and pears but haven’t done those for many many years! I think we were a little intimidated by it. I love that we have started doing the pickles ~ maybe we can try doing more of it again. The jars on the pantry shelf are such a wonderful sight!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


    P.S. Your house is coming along wonderfully!!

  10. I just made salsa this morning. I’ve also canned several types of pickles, beans, peas, veggie soup, potato soup and jellies this year. Being unemployed does have a good side after all! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  11. Hi Tricia & Welcome!

    You have been very ambitious! What a blessing all these things will be for you this winter! I would love to try and can salsa ~ maybe next year!

    Have a blessed weekend,
