The Aromas of Autumn

Hello darlings,

Falling in love with fall and all that comes with its
harvest.  We have been like little squirrels, storing
for winter.  We canned and freeze some of our
local fruits, and we loving every minute of it. 
The apples are delicious and the peaches are
mouth watering.  Very tasty indeed.

My dear husband busy at the milling process.

Do you like to have some apple sauce?

Almost ready for canning.

Delicious Apple Sauce!


The apple sauce has been canned, now let's
can some juicy peaches!

Getting a good bath in hot water to be able
to remove the skin easily.

VERY mouth watering!

I love them!

Very pleased with the results

We also canned carrots

Strawberry Jam and...

Cranberry Jam

We reused the tomato sauce jars,
CLASSICO (Atlas,Mason jars)

We give Thanks for all our Blessings!

Wishing you Harvest Blessings!


I am joining ...

Thank you for hosting!


  1. okay, you make it look so effortless...everything looks so pretty and tidy! My kitchen would look like a tornado went through!
    A beautiful post.


  2. Wauw you have been busy! That looks delicious!

    Have a nice weekend,


  3. Wow what a great variety of treats! I am trying my hand at canning for the first time. We have grapes in the backyard so I made some grape juice the other day and today I made some grape jelly. Would like to try some tomato sauce next, we'll see.
    Enjoy your goodies!

  4. Dearest Wendy,

    My goodness, you both have been very industrious! Looks all delicious and you did it in a very smart way. Recycling those jars is a great idea. More women should do this in order to make ends meet during this downward economy.
    Love to you,


  5. Wendy, your caning looks delicious and you have it displayed beautifully. I used to can, but mine never look that good. I love the mosaics. Wishing you harvest blessings as well.

  6. Wendy- OH MY GOODNESS-You have been one busy domestic goddess and it looks like the King of the House helped too! Lucky you. I do think we are going to have to change your name to Susie Homemaker now though! xo Diana
