A Little Bit of Summer
One of my favorite things I canned this summer was nectarine preserves. I am not a huge fan of peachy-nectarine jams and didn’t even plan on making one. Instead, I set out to make apricots preserved in vanilla bean and white wine, but when I got home I looked at my “apricots” and realized they were, in fact, nectarines. Strong work, observational skills!
Luckily, I found this recipe from Canning for a New Generation for nectarine jam with vanilla beans.
I figured I had nothing to lose so I whipped up a batch. It. Was. Good. So good that I went out, bought more supplies, and canned two more batches! I put it on toast, over ice cream, and I am thinking of making some sort of cake – just so I can drizzle these preserves on top. Yum.
I will definitely be making this come next summer.
