Canning.....I did it!

I'm so excited. I just succeeded in my first attempt at canning! I was offered appricots but wasn't sure what to do with them. After much help from my mom, I decided that little old me might be able to can them. So, I went and bought some jars (not too cheap, I might add), and started to get ready. It only took me a week to get everthing together that I needed so that I could go pick the appricots.

I spent a bit of time on Saturday actually canning them. And it wasn't as much work as I remembered it being when my mom made us help her when we were little. So after a few hours, I had results! Can you tell, I'm excited? I'm so proud of myself. Now onto the next task, fruit leather...

Now, what you're all waiting for... The Results
