The hubby and I spent the better part of Sunday stirring big pots of pear butter on the stove. It is my first real experience with canning from start to finish and I loved it, well mostly... my back started hurting and I had to pull a chair up next to the stove to rest once in a while...being almost 5 months pregnant next to a hot stove all day didn't really mix. Anyways...this whole canning experience begun because my husband brought home BOXES of fruit. We've already dried a case of bananas, a case of pears and and made 29 pints of pear butter ( in two flavors!). That only leaves one case of pears and two boxes of apples to go!
Don't these little jars of goodness look wonderful!!! I love the little labels I created for them! I have never made labels before and with some trial and error was pretty successful I think :)
Hopefully the rest of this stormy day will be spent making Pear Jam and Applesauce!
