"A Canning We Will Go"

I have been having SO much fun canning pickles over the past couple of weekends.  So far, I've made 2 dozen jars of Spicy Garlic Dill Pickles.  I had never canned pickles before, so I scoured the Internet to find a recipe that sounded good - Oh, and EASY too!  I think I found a great one.  Those that have tasted the pickles have said they are really good - and they think I'm fibbing when I say this was my first time making pickles.  It's been fun!
Because the pickle making has gone so well I decided to look at recipes for other things as well.  I found a yummy sounding recipe for Peach Almond Jam.  So, this morning I bought some peaches and made it.  I can't even describe how delicious this jam is.  Wonderfully sweet peaches combined with almond extract.  Summer in a jar!

Next weekend my friend Kathy and I are going to try spicy pickled green beans!  I'll let you know how they turn out!

I just loved both of these recipes. The jam was the best I have tasted, and the Spicy Garlic Dill Pickles are the best. Check out Cindy's Gumbo Ya Ya web site for the recipes.
