Doing the can-can

Last week I was given around 50lbs of carrots and 3 dozen ears of corn so I had been canning and freezing this past week. I just love the look of the finish product, you know" it"s the fruit of your labor" thing. I was able to can 8 pints of corn and freeze 4 quarts. It's ironic because I'm allergic to corn but "the man of the place" loves it.

Then with the carrots I canned 16 pints, froze grated carrots for carrot cake (enough for 5), and another 3 bags of grated for soup. Then I have 5 bags of chunk pieces for stew.  
Then with some of the remaining carrots I grated them for Carrot Marmalade, canned 12 jars
Then I canned 12 jars of Carrot Cake Jam, now that was really delicious. I found the recipe by googling Carrot Cake Jam. I have more grated carrots so when I get back from Fort Smith I plan on  making more jam. I think the ladies at the 30's club would like this one.

So pretty

Till next time


  1. I just love the look of the jars lined up like that! Doesn't it make you feel great?!?! I would love to try the carrot cake jam (never heard of it) and will look up the recipe.

  2. Carrot Marmalade sounds good enough but Carrot Cake Jam sounds outrageously good!! :)

  3. Love it! I know you are proud and your canning is beautiful! I always like the way it felt after all of your hard work to look at the beautiful food.

  4. I have never heard of carrot marmalade! Sounds scrumptious!

  5. I never heard of carrot marmalade either.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
