September is here! (Wow, that happened fast.) And that means it’s time for my second annual Canning Week. Yay!

This year I’m teaming up with a few of my dearest friends, and fellow canning enthusiasts, Becky of Vintage Mixer and Kelley of Mountain Mama Cooks. All week we’ll be bringing you new canning and preserving recipes and ideas. Plus, read on to find out how you can win a fun canning prize pack!

Canning Week 2014

Kelley, Becky and I are all Utah locals. We were introduced through our blogs, but our friendship now goes well beyond the world of blogging. We often get together to make and bake food, and in the late summer we gather for “canning days” where we work hard to put up fresh produce for the winter.

Each year we use a few favorite, tried-and-true recipes, and try some new ones too. Here are a few old faves, plus be sure to check back all week for new recipes. Oh, and don’t forget about the giveaway below!
