Hi my name is Stephinie, I am an obsessive home canner.....
For reals folks, it's been crazy around here. Last weekend we put up 10 quarts each of whole tomatoes & peach halves, 6 pints of tomato salsa, 6 pints of peach salsa, 6 jars of gingered fig jam and 3 jars of Sauvignon Blanc Peach Jam. (The last two my very own creations!)
My friend Rachel seriously has the best darn salsa recipes out there. Her peach salsa is amazing (& gorgeous to look at!) and her tomato salsa is rich and hearty and peeping out from my pantry asking to be opened. I've been bringing home boxes of local produce and the salsas have been almost totally local, with the exception of cilantro & onions.
The pantry is filling up little by little and I am loving (like entirely too much) labeling the beautiful jars of food with these simple little labels. And these adorably fantastic labels have foodie gift giving ideas dancing in my mind.
It's pure addiction friends.... pure addiction indeed. It sure keeps a girl busy in the humid heat and jars hold awfully still while you photograph them. A jam photo shoot?! I know, I know. I promise to try and curb my preserving posts back to a reasonable amount.... really I will... but first just take a peek at these lovelies.....
Peach Sauvignon Blanc ~ A lovely jam made from blended peaches, a whole bottle of Joe's amazing Sauvignon Blanc Wine, sugar and pectin.
With this sort of loot, toast can never be boring.
Tell me, are any of you enjoying putting up the summer's bounty? Do share.
