    Figs are the best. We have a fig tree out back that produces more figs that we can handle. Even the squirrels and birds can’t manage all the figs!

    It is very hard to pick just one favorite food to preserve. Freezing blueberries, strawberries and peaches here in the south is a must and helps extend the enjoyment of these delicious fruits all year. There is nothing better than canning fresh tomatoes to have to enjoy for many dishes for the year.

    Must of the summers of my youth were spent with my Nana in southern Oklahoma. Every year we picked plums from over 30 trees in her land. We then made plum preserves for every neighbor, family member and church goer she knew. Heck, even some she didn’t. She was sort of known for her huge basket with the blue plaid liner just full of jars of jelly and jam. She even had hand made labels that said, “Just Plum Good”. And it was. She just turned 100 this last April, and folks from all around came to wish her well. Most reminisced with her about her preserves. What a gift she is and what a blessing to have had those Oklahoma summers.

    Forgot to mention my favorite. Growing up I loved it when my mom made fresh raspberry jam. So in fruit section I must say raspberries and red currant berries too. Other timatoes and chilipeppers are my favs, will attempt to make chilli-jam tonight. First time ever canning (with limited supplies), wish me luck :)

    I’ve been preserving plum tomatoes for many years to use to make fresh tomato sauce for pasta. My Italian mother-in-law showed me how to do this when my husband and I were first married and it has been an August tradition ever since. The sauce made from these tomatoes tastes amazing!

    Without a doubt my favorite are Roma tomatoes. Just the thought of them makes my mouth water-because that means I’ll be making sauce. My Sicilian mother-in-law taught me how to make sauce when I was nineteen. I am now fifty-six. She passed away four years ago. Every Sunday dinner when I make one of her dishes, I wave my hand over the sauce like she did and I smell the sauce. I close my eyes and I can hear her laugh and thank God I had her in my life. She was THE best cook. SHe will be forever missed.

    My favorite summer food…so hard! I’m going to say crabapple butter. It’s the ultimate in thrifty. You take crabapples, which I forage from places that normally let them rot on the ground (places that don’t use pesticides). Then, after simmering out the juice and making jelly, I press out the pulp of all those tiny apples. It gets cooked down with a bit of the juice, some sugar and cinnamon. It’s just amazing. A near win is peach peel jelly.

    My favorite thing to can is strawberry jam. Ok, it is the only thing I know how to can. I’ve only been doing this for two weeks. My mom broke her hip last week. It has been an intense week and the recovery has only just begun. Jam making is what I look forward to in the few precious spare hours I can call my own. It gives me some control in an otherwise out of control situation. It also gives me a nice thank you for the kindnesses shown by the doctors and nurses who have come to our rescue.

    I love blueberry jam. Im 51 and now getting back into canning since being a teen on the farm. Theres nothing like fresh blueberry jam on pancakes on a cold Indiana morning.

    Weck canning Jars……..saw them on a friends cellar shelves, filled with foods last fall, had to ask what kind of jars they were, as I had never seen them before. They are beautiful on the shelves. Have had my old jars for so long, may have to start adding new Weck ones to pretty up the selection in the cellar!

    Raspberries for sure! One of the best memories I have is picking raspberries with my grandmother and then making jam!

    My favorite, albeit unusual, food to preserve is tomato preserves. My grandmother made this garden treat every year, thus making it reminiscent of those special moments together in the kitchen. No one else in my family has ever been brave enough to partake in its unusual goodness. They would prefer the more standard fare of home canned green beans or strawberry jam.

    I’m in love with all kinds of berries! Making jams are the perfect way to keep summer days all year round :) I love making pies with fruit preserves using the Breville pie maker purchased at Williams Sonoma! It was a wedding gift and I must say is one of my favorites ;)

    Tomatoes! I love to have “fresh” tomatoes from the garden in the middle of winter. There is something about that bright flavor! I just bought my first set of Weck jars, and would love to add to the collection!!

    My mom’s Spaghetti Sauce. Hands down. I love when it has just started to simmer while cooking down for canning. The fresh tomatoes from market to sauce and in a jar for winter enjoyment. I was so happy when I learned to can on my own. Now she taught me and will help me now.

    Peppers! Hot, Mild or Sweet! They grow so easy, even in this year’s drought!
    Canned in spicy salsa. Pickled for pizza’s and sandwiches. Stuffed, breaded and Frozen for the BEST Jalapeno poppers all winter… out of the freezer, into the hot oil.
    Dehydrated for adding to winter stews and chili. Yep! Peppers!

    When forced to choose, I’d have to say my favorite things to preserve in the summertime are figs and pickles – particularly curry pickle slices which I am addicted to. Oh, and blackberry jam with fruit harvested from the garden.

    I love to make salsa from my garden – Roma tomatoes, Serrano peppers, cilantro, onions, garlic, and my special ingredient: Rose’s LIme Juice. This red salsa would look so great in some of those cool Weck jars, to give a Christmas gifts decorated with green ribbons!

    Blackberries grow wild and abundant all around our home zone of living in the middle of a national forest!!! I can have as many blackberries to can, as I can pick!!! I like to make blackberry jams, jellies, syrups to can, and make fruit salads, smoothies, and snacks of blackberries by freezing them, and topping them with whipped cream in a bowl to eat, once they are frozen. I also like to can peaches from our neighbor’s trees, as they gift us with a lug of ‘bend over peaches’ (they are sooo juicy, you have to bend over to not get peach juice down your chin and front of your shirt!), and I usually buy a lug or two from them, as well. I put in my own garden in our pasture area this year, and it’s 200 ft. x 50 ft., tilled, weeded, and supplemented with compost from pine, oak, maple leaves, kitchen veggie and fruit scraps, and horse and cow manure from our own creatures. Zucchini, crookneck and scalloped squashes are doing fine, and we ought to have some Amish heirloom pumpkins do well by harvest time, too, for some homemade pumpkin pie filling of pureed pumpkin and spices that I’d like to can, too.

    I love using zucchini, yellow squash and tomatoes (red or green)!! They go great together in ratatouille, relishes, or alone in pickles, sauces, and salsas! Zucchini I just wash and seed then chop and measure into 2Cup packets, freeze and use whenever I want to include a recipe. Roma tomatoes I just wash and freeze for whatever recipe I am making such as soup, stew or sauces. Very versatile!!!

    Just started canning this year, but a longtime organic grower.
    After my first canning experience (pickled zucchini) I became hooked!
    The of the cans popping was totally exhilarating and they look SO beautiful on the special shelf we cleared for them.
    Our favorite so far is organic apple butter – I simmered it in the crock all day and canned it during a power outage – thank goodness for lanterns and gas ranges.
    We’ve been eating peanut butter and apple butter sandwiches on the beach every weekend! My toddler goes crazy for it.
    I <3 preserving nature's beautiful gifts!
