Enjoying the fruits of success

Peach picking …

a successful weekend of canning!


After a weekend of canning peaches & plums … (peaches, peach jam, peach salsa (yum!), red plum & raspberry jam and green plum, blackberry & raspberry jam) … I realized I had picked Green Plums (sweet and tart), not Gold Plums. So I had to add those color recipes too.

Revised color recipe for Multi-Step Peach, found  HERE.


I thought it would be fun stamp the fruit as the top can labels. I didn’t worry about buying adhesive labels. I cut circles from cardstock scraps (using a few different sizes) and Classic Circles Nestiblilites. Honestly, it took more time to cut the paper then stamp the labels.

Working with 6 labels at a time, I stamped one step at a time on each label before I moved onto the next step. This made multi-step stamping for mass production go quickly. Adding the second peach did take a little more time because of the masking, but I masked all six at the same time – again made it quicker.

Stamping a single multi-step peach on 6 labels took about 15 mins.



 I can’t believe a number of canned goods came from that picking session … plus, I have more peaches in the freezer!  🙂

If you are looking for a good Peach Salsa recipe,

I found one on allrecipes.com. It had been altered from another recipe, which I then altered. I did not use the amount of sugar the recipe called for (the peaches were sweet enough on their own) and made a few changes since I had 2 mangos that I wanted to use.

3 cups fresh peaches + 1 cup mango – peeled, pitted and chopped

1/2 cup chopped red onion

1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper

4 jalapeno peppers, minced

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/4 cup distilled white vinegar

1 teaspoon grated lime zest

1/4 cup white sugar


I doubled the above recipe but did not double the jalapeno peppers.

  1. I didn’t even realize green plums even existed! LOL! Snaps for all your canning endeavors and the beautiful lids you created for them!


    1. Thank you Merdith for the lovely comment! I never knew about green plums either until I picked one! If you like sweet with a bit if a tart bite … then you would love these. I need to go back and find out its name. 🙂
