First attempt at fruit bottling

Thanks to some strategically-placed netting and the little apple pouches, we had a bumper crop from the apricot tree this year so I was tempted to try my hand at bottling. We’d eaten much of the harvest fresh, but they were ripening so quickly it was obvious we were going to lose them if something wasn’t done.

Just eight small jars, but I’m really pleased with the results, so much so that I’m going to buy a bigger preserving pan and make bottling a regular thing.

    Congratulations Foodie, these jars looks good enough to eat! I’ll be interested to know how long you can keep them – not long I ‘spose, they look too tempting. 🙂

    You’re right, Kayepea. We’re down to four jars already! (they were only small jars, though).

    I’ve bought a bigger pan and will be looking forward to apple-ripening time.
