Can It Up: August

Photo by Tom

Last month, it was incredibly hot.

Now that I work in San Francisco, I am freezing all the time. The weather this week isn’t helping me feel any warmer. It’s back to a typical Bay Area summer.

This means it’s the perfect time to heat up the kitchen with lots of boiling water and boiling fruit. We were on fire preserving berries last month. What will we preserve with this month?

Let’s Can It Up!

  • First, review the Can It Up ground rules.

Or you can do all four! I will do a round-up on September 1st.
  • Please mention Can It Up and link back to this post.
