I came, I saw, I rescued, I canned!

Rememba' these babies? Well, they met their tasty demise last night when I canned my first round! I boiled them up, added the sugar & Sure-Gel, skimmed off the "scummy" froth caused by the hard boil, & ladled the tangy sweet concoction into pint Ball jars.

It smelled wonderful, tasted delightful, I only hope the skins of the plum don't turn out to be too chewy. I got 10 pint-sized jars w/ 6 cups of fruit & 8 cups of sugar.

The making of Christmas gifts has officially begun! :o)
