I am slowly persevering into the world of canning. I've canned relish and apple butter, it was so much fun and I got raving reviews both times from neighbours, friends and family.

Anyways, as I perused through the various canning threads on the forum, looking for recipes, I thought it would be so nice if they were assembled in one place. I'm really surprised there aren't more threads like that in the food category, as many of the other categories have tutorial listings. Well.. if a recipe isn't a tutorial I don't know what is!

So anything posted here has a recipe in the topic or a link to the recipe. The best part? Craftster pictures and reviews to tell you how it turned out! Also, there are some recipes here we weren't canned (such as salsas and chutney) by the original poster, but can easily be canned!

For info and tips on canning in general scroll to bottom of post!

Fruits, including candied and salsas, etc.

Canning Tips from Creative Crafsters!

"The "secret" to super clear jelly seems to be to add a touch of butter in the end to get rid of the froth!  For years I used the jelly straining bags and it took forever!  The butter tip was part of the instructions by the Ball canning folks--which, btw, I highly recommend their book for anyone who wants to learn simple canning methods!!" - alwaysinmyroom

"Here is a tip to make a quick pepper jelly. Buy a jar of raspberry preserves pour the contents into a saucepan and heat on medium until the jam is melted then stir in a few seeded and finely diced jalapenos. Once it is cool it is great served with cream cheese and crackers or tortilla chips. You can substitute different flavors of jam for the raspberry, have fun creating your designer jam." - Freshair

Tips on making Apple Cider Jelly

"Add some cranberries to applesauce" for a surprise colour and Christmas taste! - detailedlace

Great info!  Thank you for concise-ifying it all into one place.  DH and I are new to canning.  We have made pickles and look forward to preserving more foods in the future.  We want to get a pressure canner.  What features should we look for?  What do you seasoned canners recommend and what should we steer clear of?  TIA

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
