The Sound Of Canning

Mom is back home after three weeks away! I bought 25 lbs. of apricots on Saturday from a street vendor and she has been very busy today. We agree there is no more satisfying sound than those lids popping.

I love apricot jam! Send your mom over this way with a couple of jars!! That's so nice that she does that. My mom never canned anything.

Amy said...

Yum! I can almost smell the goodness.

Hi!
We'll it looks delicious... enjoy eating it with toasts... my mom makes jam with the fruits we grow in our garden: cherry, peaches, apricots... they're much better than the ones bought in the shops... probably because they're made with love...
enjoy the flavours,

I was just thinking I've always wanted to learn to can. Who knew the lids made a popping sound? I need to find a canning tutor. I'd fly cross country if your mom wants to start running a workshop!
