My Canning Menu!

This week my focus was to narrow down my plan for the learning project and come up with the recipes I plan to make as well as gather the supplies I will be needing. This is great timing because my bucket of green tomatoes have almost all turned red- so I will need to get started on my salsa and tomato sauce fairly quickly! My parents also gave me a huge bag of apples from their apple tree, so I was on the hunt for some delicious apple recipes too.

I am going to start with this collection of recipes, and depending how these go I will likely come across some other recipes I want to try (or I may end up having to try again if I mess up!) I did try to include a variety of platforms such as blogs, you tube videos, instagram, and tik tok.

This tik tok video helped me determine what I needed to get started. I know nothing about tik tok but am trying to expand my knowledge on different social networking platforms so here we are! https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMFePKAyf/


Jars and lids- got these from my mom. I will have to go to the grocery store to get more, and probably some larger ones

Stock pot- purchased from the grocery store

Water bath canner and tongs- borrowed from my mom. I have learned that this is what you use to sanitize the jars and also to seal them.

I plan to make this one with my slow cooker! I hope this one turns out well because I know my kids would love this!

    1. Thank you! I’m happy to have a lot of the fruits and veggies homegrown, but as the months go on I’m sure I will have to make some trips to the grocery store for some of my recipes.


    1. It totally seems like a “mom” thing to do lol! I know my kids would love to help me do some, but they make things much messier and more difficult (they are 5 and 2). Once I know more what I am doing with canning I will do a recipe with them, and then I can be prepared for the gong show!


  1. What a delicious project. Canning has always intimidated me so I’m excited to live vicariously through you lol. I also found Tiktok a great resource for beginner tips. Tiktok also has some amazing chefs and recipes if you like visual representations. I’m super excited to see how your recipes turn out!


    1. I am new to Tiktok but I am hoping to explore it more during this project! If you have any specific people I should follow in regards to chefs or recipes I would love to know about them!
