Free Bear Canning Printables

When I was a little girl, my mom and I would always be canning or preserving things from our family garden like corn, green beans, pickles and of course my all time favorite pickled beets. Over the summer I seem to have been wanting to get back into canning and preserving things especially since my parents have a pretty large garden that I am constantly taking vegetables from and we also love the farmers market. There is nothing better then fresh local ingredients- so why not learn and get better at canning and do more than just jelly.
I have been going the last couple of months to the Portland Preservation Society which is a group that gets together once a month and swaps their latest home made goods.  So if you made a ton of pickled beets or maybe made a ton of peach jam then you can trade for delicious goodies. I have to say I have gotten some amazing things in the swaps such as Kim Chi, smoked salmon and fig mustard.  The Kim Chi was so good that Tim has been pestering me to learn how to make it.  

I made a bunch of stuff this month like Chai, Srircha, and picked radishes- and made these adorable labels for the jars. Click here to free download.  and I can not wait to make more things in jars!

Do you preserve things?

Adorable! Though canning isn't a big part of our culture, but I can see these would have many other uses, like gift tags and book labels :)

Thank u for the cute labels! Maybe I will finally make my jars prettier. I always end up tired and skip the final touch(honestly:-)) x

Your canning labels are adorable! I've not canned anything, but the labels are so darned cute, I almost want to give it a go... What a great idea to have a group where people can exchange things.

I've always wanted to make preserves. As it is now, I only have mason jars for decoration or flower vases :) These are seriously cute. xo
