Jam and More Jam

Well Ive been at it again.  Jam making.  I really enjoy making Jams and Jellies and all sorts of canning stuff.  Its a good thing I have lots of friends who like eating it too, cause otherwise there's no way I would be able to eat all I make.

So this got me thinking, we have a craft sale in Cessford in November sometime and maybe I should sell some of my jams there.  I have done this before and its went over okay, not super well, but I have only had them there once and it was kinda spur of the moment.  With some time to plan, maybe  it will be a little better.

So I am planning now.  I thought if I want them to sell, maybe to be given as gifts, I should make some pretty labels.  I looked at what I could make on the computer and then thought since I scrapbook, why not make scrapbooking type labels. So this is what I've come up with so far.

And this is what they look like on the jars. I still have many more to make and put on, but just thinking so far.

I am thinking I will be taking rhubarb raspberry jam, raspberry jelly, nanking jelly, crab apple jelly, apple jelly, peach jam and applesauce.  I am thinking of charging $3 for small jars, or $5 for big jars and all applesauce at $4.  Should be fun, I guess I better get on making more labels though and ordering a table.

They look good so far. You could also take little scraps of fabric and ribbons to decorate the tops of the jars if you wanted.Just cut a circle and place it on top so that it hangs over and secure it with a liltte piece of ribbon or twine

Mmmm sounds like a good idea! I love to can veggies but I have never made jams or jellies before. I will have to try it sometime.

All your jars look so good! I am missing canning this year being away from home for a few months. My sweet girlfriends are canning all my apples for me, so I will have some goodies when I get back.
