CAN ALL THE THINGS

When I returned from the field, [personal profile] scrottie reported that the freezer was FULL. I have been stockpiling a lot of berries in there. Whoops. So it was time to roll up my sleeves and start canning.

For now, just some brief notes:

-The strawberry-rhubarb jam recipe from the Ball canning book is WAY TOO SWEET. But that could be because I was working with perfectly ripe strawberries, which are already quite sweet. For my second batch, I increased the rhubarb and cut the sugar. But I should also just try to find a better recipe.
-Meanwhile, the blackberry liquor syrup recipe is HEAVENLY. [personal profile] sytharin will be pleased.
-I tried out a raspberry cocoa jam recipe, and cut the sugar for it as well, and it's also delicious, even if S's first remark was, "I prefer fruit that isn't doctored with other stuff." Harumph. I am pretty sure that any and all recipients of raspberry cocoa jam won't complain.

We also whipped up a batch of dandelion pesto, and basil pesto.

So many jars.
