Canning with April – part 2

April and I did our summer canning last Sunday. In total, we put up:
-Applesauce – 4 quarts and 8 pints
-Tomatoes – 3 quarts
-Strawberry Jam – 5 pints (we ran out of half-pints) and two half-pints
-Blackberry Jam – 8 half-pints
-Peach marmalade – 10 half-pints
This is about twice what we put up last year.

With the little prep I did on Saturday, we spent five hours and 10 pounds of sugar on the production. It was fun. The house smelled like a candy factory.
