Canning and Freezing for the Year - 2012

I have been busy doing some canning and freezing the past couple of days. So far this year, we have canned the following:


3 Twelve oz. Raspberry Jam
6 Eight oz. Raspberry Jam


5 Pints Pickled Green Beans
5 Eight oz. Apple Butter
3 Pints Apple Butter
6 Pints Applesauce


2 Quarts peaches
6 jars peach jam

This is what we have frozen so far this year:

5 1/2 Pints Applesauce
7 Pints Rhubarb
6 Pints Strawberries
4 Pints Spinach
9 Pints Shredded Zucchini
2 Pints Cut Zucchini
11 Pints Green Beans
 2 Pints Tomato Puree
2 Pints Spaghetti Sauce
2 Pints Pear Sauce
2 Pints Peach Sauce
3 quarts Peach Pie Filling
3 pkgs. yams
2 pkgs. mashed yams
2 pkgs. tomatoes
2 16 oz. pkgs. broccoli
2 8 oz. pkgs. collard greens
1 quart spaghetti squash
2 pkgs. butternut squash
15 pints pumpkin

It takes some time to preserve food, but it is nice to have all winter as well as helpful for your budget. Everything except the strawberries came from our garden and the apples were given to us by a friend. We eat what we can when it is fresh, but save what we can't eat for later in the year.
