June pushing toward July is the start of what is known in the South as “canning season.”
I have already made strawberry jam.
When I was growing up living with Aunt Nellie and near my grandmother O’Dell putting fruits and vegetables in jars for the winter was a way of life. Starting with June, apples for jelly, strawberry jam, and blackberries canned for jam or jelly and to make blackberry cobblers.
The garden vegetables started coming in, so it was canning green beans, cream corn, tomatoes and my favorite homemade canned vegetable soup.
