Glorious Canning Colors

This reminds me of the picture of all the babies laid out on blankets. Each canning experience was a learning experience that I got a little better at each time. The colors of each fruit and some veg are so beautiful, their taste so unique and flavorful.

Tomato,peach jam, plum and peach jam

The golden amber and muted reds are as beautiful and they are tasty.
