1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Cool thanks for sharing. I love to can. Got started years ago in the pan handle of Idaho. We pick huckleberrit's every year and make a batch of jam. My youngest son is very protective of it. We make 9 jars. 6 are for us. The other 3 get given as gifts or traded, but only with his approval. The 6 we keep he watches like a hawk. We can lots of other stuff,but the jam has a special place.

    @grey mouse Just remember to use the actual canning recipes with a grain of salt, if at all. Many of the old ways of canning are considered Russion roulette by today's standards and knowledge. Still the old recipe books make for VERY interesting reading. Wife has one that is a civil war reproduction. There is one for hemp candy in it. :confused:

    @Griff4570 have yet to try huckleberries. One of these days though.

    Do you guys have elderberries out there? Those are another "forgotten" berry that is really really delicious. We "realized" that there was a bunch of them growing wild at my parents a few years back. We picked two 5-gallon buckets full and canned lots of jelly and some syrup. :32: We still have jars from the initial batch in the pantry.

    Wy_Not - I completely understand. I'm going to use the basic recipes to come up with my own version using modern techniques. Many of the recipes will just be good dinners for us. We don't have any elderberries here that I am aware of but I can tell you that I'm addicted to boysenberries :32:

    I'm thinking a three-way jelly swap is in order.
