It’s old-fashioned, it’s an amazing color, and it’s not too much work if you can find some crab apple trees. We have plenty of them growing as street trees in Seattle.
In canning, like life, there are many ways to do a right thing that will get you to similar outcome. If you ever invite yourself over to make some jam, I hope you leave my kitchen with a few pretty jars and a big boost of kitchen confidence.
This the type of project that I get up and do when I can’t sleep. Simple taped bands for this year’s canned goods.
