Can jam march round-up: Allium

Must Try Recipes

Can i officially change the name to all-yums?

I am truly excited about a number of the entries this month! the now ‘bottled’ delicacies lounging on our larder shelves ready to enhance fresh spring chevre & just laid eggs, chilled soups, summer cocktails, garden fresh sandwiches, barbecues & stir-fries… there are a myriad of pairings that i can imagine with this month’s entries…and so spring-summery!

Here’s to every one of you that’s given it your all thus far. these were truly the challenging months. we lost a few along the way but a good many are going strong. so keep up bloggers & non, and everyone following along – spring has sprung! and when finally all those luscious fruits and veggies are screaming, “preserve me now or i’m gonna jump!” you & your canning pot will deftly rise to the rescue…

A reminder-invitation for those not yet following along on twitter at hashtag #tigresscanjam, there’s lots of good discussions & questions/answers popping up among the can jammers so check it out if you haven’t yet & are so inclined.

While i’m on the social-networking tip: i recently changed my page on facebook so if you were following along before you will need to re-fan me or i’ve lost you. if you haven’t yet & are so inclined, hop on – it’s a chronicle of all things i find delicious and inspiring around the blogosphere, and a fun & easy format to ask questions about all things pickle & jam, etc.

This month i was particularly moved by barbara of robbing peter‘s post as she confessed her initial excitement and then struggle coming up with her march entry, until finally she arrived here:

“can jam is about learning. about challenging ourselves to simply get into the kitchen once a month and can something. about devoting this time to our kitchens, our blogs and therefore ourselves. once i figured this out i knew what i was going to make. something that would be a valuable addition to my pantry. something that i would actually EAT.”
