Put 'em Up!

Summer is ending and I'm a bit sad. Before long, I'll be storing my bathing suit and Winter evenings will be filled with hearty potato soups. Every season, I kick myself for having a jar of preserved AIR. Canning classes, food swaps or lovely photos never gave me the boost to "put up" food.  

A few months back, I decided to revisit Put' em Up! A Comprehensive Home Preserving Guide for the Creative Cook by Sherri Brooks Vinton. I started with the Berry Bourbon and moved to Berry Coulis, Frozen Berries, Red Hot Vodka and Aqua Frescas. Sherri inspired me to make better use of my locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Cheers to inspiration, summer preserving and Sherri!   

What have ya'll "put up" this summer?
