Weekend Canning Projects!

On Friday, I ventured into
Attempting to make Jelly!
and ended up with
Apple Rosemary Jelly Syrup

I tried a recipe that said if I simmered the apples,
peelings and seeds, I wouldn't have to use pectin,
because apples contain natural pectin.
I was a bit mislead, because I later found out
that if I had used sour apples (i.e. Granny Smith),
it would have worked.Oh Well!
Although I can't detect any Rosemary flavor,
I have some awesome apple syrup for pancakes!
And isn't it a beautiful clear honey color?!!!

Then, Saturday,
I pressure canned green beans and turnip greens. 
I also picked up a case each of yellow squash and zucchini.
No! I'm not gonna can these! They are going in the freezer.
I may bake a few loaves of zucchini bread while I'm at it!

And, of course, I came home with 10#s of McIntosh Apples.
I may try the apple jelly thing again.  Maybe!
I will finish these tasks before
the end of next week ...
I hope!  I must! 
I have venison waiting to be put up! 
Thanks to the Great Hunter!
Oy Vey!
