I officially have a second to type out some recipes!
Here are a few to get you started.
I suggest using the recipe that comes on the insert of whatever pectin you're using to make it. Mine called for 6 cups of crushed strawberries, most call for that amount, but it's best to go with what is recommended by the company producing the pectin. Using different recipes, I've had different results in how firm the set is, but my best results have been following what is recommended for the specific pectin!
I've been using an all natural premade mix for my dill pickles and they've turned out beautifully. I am planning to venture into homemade solution mixes, but wanted my first few batches to be pretty foolproof to gain some confidence.
Tim thinks these sound gross, but I love them!
I made a homemade pickling solution for these and it turned out well, so I'll definitely be trying it for our next batch of pickled cukes.
Will post the recipe when I get the time to pickle this weekend!
Peaches in Light Syrup-
Yep, just like you find at the grocery store BUT made with organic, NC grown peaches and organic sugar (not much of it, either!)
These are freakin' delicious and I'll post a tutorial for them next week sometime. I'm planning to make more!

And the cool thing about everything I just posted?
All can be made with a water bath, no pressure canner necessary.
Great for those of us just starting out!
