Canning season just about here,


I always start with strawberry jam as the local berries are usually ready in June. BC Berries are a distinct type and are totally more flavorful than others. But they don't last and are not good for shipping, so make your jam right away!

I like to get all my supplies and jars ready and replace jars where needed.

Then go through recipes and find something new to try. Each year I change some relishes 
adding a bit more spice or garlic to my recipes.

Salsa is a challenge, making about four different flavours from regular to medium to hot.

Bob has his own way to label the different salsas he does, Mango to Red Rocket. His Thermate hot sauce can only be used sparingly.
