The Fruit of My Labor


Aren't they pretty? I would have had an even dozen quarts but one of the jars cracked in the canner! Bummer. Jim took the kids out to dinner last night and I canned the pears. I can't handle kids AND canning right now even if it IS only 11 quarts!! :-)

Do you give these out as gifts? My mother-in-law makes jams every year and cans them. I can't get over how much work it is.

I've given jams out as gifts but never the canned fruit. Good idea though! Maybe I should do up pints and give them as gifts... goes further that way!! :-)
