Can It Up: March (and a Giveaway!)

Can It Up: March

I’m thrilled it’s finally March! I consider the start of March to be the official start of canning and preserving season.

It’s also the start of another month of Can It Up! February’s ingredient was fun, but does not compare to what the rest of the year has in store for us.

Scroll down for another giveaway in the year-long Can It Up giveaways!

Let’s Can It Up!

  • First, review the Can It Up ground rules.
  • During the month of March (that means up to March 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 April 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 March 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.

March’s selected ingredient is dried fruit! How will dried fruit be the shining star of our preserves?

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

March’s Can It Up giveaway is Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry. I just ordered a copy of this book for myself and can’t wait to try out the recipes! a Rafflecopter giveaway

    I love Canning for a New Generation. I use mine a lot and love the flavor combinations. The cardamon plum jam is one of my most popular preserves.

    Wow challenging idea–though I think there is a lot of dried fruit in one of the chutneys I make…

  • Bethany Kocher says:

    Always nice to get a fresh perspective on canning, will have to seek this one out if I don’t win.

  • Aimee G says:

    Glad I checked back in with #CanItUp! I will be away most of April, so will look to May for joining in the preserving fun again. Happy spring!
