Yes it is true I live in Utah, I have a garden, and I am canning my own goodness. I had a lovely lady in our ward drop by the house and give me a huge box of fresh organic peaches. After a night of cobbler, peach crisp and giving several out to friends I decided to break down and make jam. This I had never done before, my mom said she used to can but that must have been before I was old enough to remember. I bought my necessities (jars, lids, pectin, big pot and canning rack) I then googled how to make jam and can it easy enough I found a good sight I think it was a blog actually that had step by step easy instructions. I spent a Saturday making jam, turns out I have 19 jars well 18 now becuae London loves to have toast in the morning with mommies jam on it. I have to say I am proud of myself and my next feat is making salsa.
