from garden plOTT to kitchen pOTT; linky party

Calling all canners and canning enthusiast!  It's time for the long awaited and highly anticipated
"from garden plOTT to kitchen pOTT:
Canning Week LINKY PARTY"
Starting Monday, August 23 and running through Friday, August 27th 4 PM (EST) you can link up your post with 1.) tips or recipes on canning, 2.) any craft projects utilizing canning jars (when there isn't food in them), or 3.) any money saving tips and tricks that you gain from canning.

Our only rules are that you stick to our canning theme and only link up posts with canning jars, products, recipes and how to's, etc. and that you post our badge either in your post or on your blog sidebar so others who are interested can come join in the fun and find us too.  (The code for this badge can be found at the top of my sidebar.)

The best part is that we will be giving a prize to the best post!!!  Posts will be judged on quality of pictures, quality of writing, descriptive details and overall an entertaining and informative write up.  It is our hope to get bloggers encouraged and educated on how to can, why to can and what to do with their canning supplies.

We are very excited to have Jane from Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms be our guest judge. 
Make-Ahead Meals For Busy Moms
She will be awarding a copy of her cookbook "Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms" to the winning blog entry.  If you are interested in her book please check it out on

Don't forget besides the linky you can also sign up for all the great canning GIVE-A-WAYS we  have on Jen's blog; From Mess Hall to Bistro.  And as if that wasn't enough you can also join our canning week facebook page. 
Jen and I are partying and canning up a storm all week long so be sure to keep checking back for more!!!!!!!

I'm hooked on canning now! I went to three different garage sales this weekend and got myself all stocked up for beginning canning.

I'm looking for a low sugar blackberry/blueberry recipe. Any way I can get the word out to find one?

Love canning as we have so much garden produce planted. I can everything and this year made blackberry and grape jelly.
My favorite is dressing up my jars!

Is it ok to link up more than one post from the same blog?

wow, this is quite a round-up. It'll take me hours to read through these posts. There are so many interesting posts. Great idea for a carnival.

Oh, I came on Friday at 11:00 PST and it was closed (I thought I had an hour...)! Sorry- I wanted to link, as you'd been telling us about it for awhile at the Tuesday Garden Party.:-) This looks like a great deal of info on canning- great job! I'm going to be looking at some of these recipes! Here's the link I was going to add for Tomato Chutney (aka "adult ketcup"):
