Looking at the overload of summer veggie bounty, September is always the month that I promise myself that I am going to can and make preserves. I watched my Grandmother and my Mom do it for years, but I always felt slightly intimidated by the whole process. In looking for some tips and recipes, I turned to some Canning experts and delicious food bloggers to share recipes.
I am ready to DO IT this year! How about you?
