Has this ever happened to you?

  • Your mother loved the Spiced Blueberry Jam you gave her for Christmas, and wants more this year. But you can’t remember what recipe you used.
  • Those pickles were just too sour! Did you use as much sugar as the recipe recommended or did you use less?
  • Your home canned corn is starting to look a little funky. You just canned that last summer, right? Or was it two summers ago? Maybe three?
  • Your pantry is overflowing with apricot jam. You definitely want to make less this year, but how much less? You can’t remember how many cans you made last year!


I know just how you feel!

After years of trying to remember what recipe I used, where that recipe could be found, and wondering just how many jars of corn relish or green salsa I had made the previous year, I finally got smart and started keeping a journal.


Sadly, my memory isn’t as sharp as I thought!

I found 23 bread and butter pickle recipes. Which one had I used last year? What about those pickles that used ripe cucumbers? Where was that recipe? How many cups of raspberries were in the Raspberry-Blueberry jam? What kind of plums did I use in that delicious Honey Plum Butter?


A Canning and Preserving Journal keeps track of all of those questions and more

I couldn’t find a journal anywhere that kept track of what I needed, so I created it myself. My Canning and Preserving Journal is a year to year listing of everything I canned or dried or froze at home. It helps me keep track of what kind of tomatoes I used in the tomato puree, how many jars of corn relish I made, and just what recipe was used for that yummy tangerine marmalade.


Better yet, it’s perfect for all of YOUR canning and preserving projects too!
