Can It Up: December

Now that I am back in California, I am so ready to Can It Up this month!

You weren’t kidding around with your contributions to last month’s Can It Up with cranberries. I can’t wait to see what you make this month.

Let’s Can It Up!

  • First, review the Can It Up ground rules.
  • During the month of December (that means up to December 31st), please either link your post to this post using the tool below; email me your post or photo; post your post or photo in the Comments section of this post; or tweet your post or a photo using our hashtag #CanItUp. Or you can do all four! I will do a round-up on January 1.
  • Please mention Can It Up and link back to this post.
  • To include your photo in the monthly roundup post, email it to me by December 31st. It must be at least 670 pixels wide and oriented horizontally (i.e. landscape).
  • Don’t forget that your preserve must be water-bath canned. Read up on water-bath canning.

December’s selected ingredient is booze! Any type of alcohol can be used as your preserve’s shining star.

There’s another giveaway this month! Preserve It! is a no-kidding preserving book. It includes recipes for preserves, of course, but also chapters on drying, freezing, salting, and lots more. If you have ever wanted to do more than water-bath can (or you’re a survivalist), this is the book for you.

The contest is open through midnight PT December 31, 2012. You can enter either by leaving a comment on this post or by participating in #CanItUp. The latter counts as a double entry. The winner will be selected via random drawing.

This contest is open only to residents of the United States.

P.S. If you have any questions/feedback/whatever, email me at allfourburners {{at}} gmail {{dot}} com.

    Nothing says the holidays like alcoholic preserves. Nice choice!

  • Deborah says:

    I have never canned anything alcoholic, so this will be a new one for me. I have been doing the Can It Up since I came across your blog, but don’t really know how this works. I did do a bunch of cranberry stuff in November–Cran-Pear-y Juice, Cran-Pear-y Butter, Cran-Apple Juice, Cran-Apple Sauce and Cranberry Orange Sauce. I don’t have a blog (yet) and am not really sure how all of this works. So I am following along and silently participating, lol!

      Sharron, I was looking through Punk Domestics last night myself…digging around for inspiration.

  • I love it Hima. Keeping me on my toes. I’ve never used alcohol in my canning, but I’m certainly up for the challenge. 😉
