Can It Up: December

Photo by Barbara Mazz

It may be officially winter in California.

Sure, it hasn’t started raining in earnest yet, but the forecast in the Bay Area this week calls for highs only in the upper 50s. Brrrr.

Of course, this week, I will be freezing to death in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania, much to the confusion of some of my Bay Area friends who thought I was referring to Pittsburg, California), where the highs will be only in the 40s. Wah.

Even though there is a lull in the growing season, there’s still plenty of fruits and vegetables waiting to be preserved! Last month, we got down and dirty with quince. What will we work with in December?

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 1st.
  • 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 lemons! Whether they are Lisbon, Eureka, Meyer, or another varietal, they should be the shining star of your preserve!

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