Canning this year?

What's anyone canning this year?
I have my dill pickle recipe I like, along with my pickled red beets, and tomatoes, I think that will be it for me.

If the bunnies don't get all the seedlings first, like they did last year, I'll probably make pickled green beans. Haven't decided if I'm planting cukes this year.

I want to make smaller batches of more things, so I bought this book - http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0762449683 - and this pot to go with it - http://www.amazon.com/Kuhn-Rikon-420.../dp/B00381ANTG.

Really looking forward to the opening of the farmers market in a couple of weeks and we planted most of our garden yesterday - tomatoes, hot and bell peppers, zucchini and summer squash. Still need to plant cucumbers and a few herbs.

I made 4 pints of Water Mellon Syrup yesterday.
We should have cukes and squash in about a
week. I love canning season

I don't dare plant anything here until after Mother's Day.

Josie- what is Watermelon syrup and how do you use it?

Garden will be planted next week. we are going to look this year to can some of the things we have been freezing, creamed corn, purple hull peas. I did an experiment last year and canned yellow squash and it turned out great. Kept much better than being frozen, plus the using canned is much easier than frozen.

No idea. I'm between houses at the moment, so canning may not be in the cards. If I can anything, it will likely be a spur-of-the-moment decision.

My garden was a total fail last year--too wet, everything rotted. Luckily, I had enough tomatoes and green beans called to last me.

This year, I will can tomato sauce, salsa, cowboy candy, and tomato juice from the garden. I have also been making and canning chicken stock, and plain canned chicken.

I understand that the new Ball Blue Book will have lots of 'meal in a jar' recipes.
