No Sugar Canned Peaches (Happy Money Saver)
"As I am starting on a more real foods lifestyle I wanted my recipe to be without white sugar. I loved the idea of using honey instead, since someday I dream of having my own beehive. We picked, peeled and canned the peaches together. Then we opened up a jar to try them out. They were wonderful!!"
- Lemon Juice
Easy Homemade Applesauce (Frugal Family Home)
"I know I used to think applesauce would be hard to make. But it’s really simple to make. With only two ingredients needed, we make ours without sugar, you can have homemade applesauce ready in a little over half an hour."
- 5.5 pounds Apples
- 1 cup Water
Blueberry Pepper Jam (Flour on My Face)
"I love the flavor the poblano peppers added to this jam. But it wasn’t spicy enough for me so next time I make it I will be increasing the amount of poblano peppers I use. I also made a peach and poblano pepper jam during my canning session. That recipe will be coming soon."

- 3 Tbsp Ball® RealFruit® Classic Pectin
