Summer in a jar

I love preserving.

Here are 2 batches of apricots that I preserved this afternoon. Aaahhh.... Winter is less gloomy when you open your pantry and look at all your preserves.

Those apricots look great VG. I can't wait until my plums ripen, coz I will be doing exactly the same thing.

My apricots look great too, just like yours. My plums are beginning to ripen, hope the birds don't find them, its one of the trees we didn't net. I have found some bird scaring tape, which I've strung across, and through the branches. I'm saving some of the kernels from the apricots, maybe a self seeded tree will perform better than the grafted one we have in the garden, which doesn't bear much fruit.
