so after finally deciding to take a canning class and learning some of the basics of preserving safety (I was always too scared of botulism to try it without a class first!!) - i now am the proud owner of a home canning kit and lots and lots of jars.
any suggestions for what i should make first? i live in california so i was thinking about marmalade, there is so much citrus around that looks good... but i really love fig jam. though i dont think they are in season.
im looking for easy recipes, preferably ones that i can't screw up by accident!!
thanks for your suggestions in advance!
