A Scarf and Something New

I'm past the halfway point on my Knit Something of the Month Scarf of July now. I'm just about to start the second skein of yarn, but there's not enough of the first to finish another full repeat, so I must be past the halfway point now. That's what I figure at least.

Next to the scarf is something new. That's a jar of the first thing I've ever canned! It's Strawberry Vanilla Jam from this recipe and it actually worked! I just had a little bit on a biscuit for breakfast and it was yummy! The recipe only made three half pints of jam, which was easy for me to handle on my first canning adventure. I've wanted to try canning for a while now but kept getting overwhelmed with all the information. I finally just decided to go for it! What's a little food poisoning among family, right?

Jam is pretty safe, especially if you use the boiling water bath method. Your scarf is looking good.

I, too, was so scared of canning! last summer we canned pickles (cukes and beans) and apples. This summer I branched out into jams with fresh strawberry/raspberry jam. (I used a low-(ish)sugar recipe from Sunset magazine.) It was so easy! And tastes so good!

Love the scarf. :-) :-)

Once upon a time, EVERYTHING was canned at home. You are a careful, conscientious person. Nothin' to worry about.

Congrats on your first canning - you
CAN can!! It' really easy if you follow the steps (and there aren't that many, really. Just be careful of green beans! I always freeze mine.
