Sunday Canning

3 Sep

I have been getting the most beautiful fresh vegetables and fruit from my local produce pack. Thanks to Abundant Acres I have a full fridge every week. This past week I had two large bags of mixed tomatoes. I usually make bruschetta out of them but i wanted to try something different today. I recently got my hands on the Food in Jars cookbook. This book is so great! I’ve been following her blog for a couple years now. I like her style because she makes canning accessible as well as her batches are smaller. Instead of the usual canning recipes that make a dozen or so jars, her recipes make about 4-6.

I can’t wait to try this over some warm melty cheese and crackers.

Also if you want to support your local food system try a produce pack. It’s really not that more expensive if you eat a lot of vegetables weekly. I share mine with a friend so there is less waste at the end of the week. Here’s a link to the farm that I buy from.
