Holy fall, ya'll! Can you believe that it's already sweater weather?
I just got back from a gorgeous wedding that was full of canning inspiration. Instead of floral centerpieces, the bride spent all summer canning beautiful north Georgia produce, and she set out arrangements of canned fruits and veggies in a rainbow of colors. We got together for a crafternoon a few weeks before the wedding and fancied up all of those lovely Mason jars:
At the end of the evening, we all took home some tasty preserves. It definitely put me into a canning state of mind.
We often associate canning with summer, but there's lots of lovely fall produce that's worthy of whipping out your canning supplies. Fall means cozy knits, comfy boots, but it also brings a whole slough of delicious produce! If you want to make it last well into the winter, canning is a great way to preserve fall's bounty to enjoy it all winter long.
