Home canning of the Northwest's summer bounty

Olympia Jane | Aug 24, 200212:56 PM     2

Tis that time of year again, time to haul out the canning supplies and fire up the imagination. I am looking for unusual canning recipes that go beyond my standard favorites. Most years I put up quarts of spiced peaches, pickled baby beets, dilled beans, a zucchini butter pickle, and usually a rasperry/sour cherry or peach jam recipe or two or three.

I would love to do something new with fresh figs, or possibly mushrooms, pickled garlic, an apricot marmalade, chutney or maybe you have an oil based hot goat horn pepper recipe? Besides canning tuna antipasto, I don't have an olive oil based canning recipes, and I would like to explore that further.

Any ideas, favorite recipes or a point in the right direction? I have almost all the standard canning Ball and Kerr recipe books...so if you know of something more interesting, let me know.

Thanks,
Jane
