Glass preserving jars for the autumn harvest
If you have an allotment or a vegetable patch in your garden, no doubt you have been busy picking the literal fruits of your labour over the last couple of months, with crops of all sorts of tasty things coming in thick and fast. From autumn-fruiting raspberries to plump marrows and a seemingly endless supply of green beans, it seems like the harvest will never end! For those of you who are lucky enough to have a greenhouse or polytunnel, the growing season continues apace and you may still be picking tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and other delights. With this inevitable glut, it is both a pleasure and a necessity to get busy with the maslin pan and some jars to preserve as much of the bounty as possible.
Preserving jars to the rescue
To get the most from your fruit and vegetable harvest, it is essential to have enough jars for preserving. From small jars for making jellies to much larger jars for pickling onions or gherkins or preserving apricots, peaches or other soft fruits, always ensure you have the right type of jar for the project and that you have enough jars and lids to tackle all the preserving you plan to do.
One autumn treat that is a great project to try is pickled red cabbage. Finely shredded red cabbage pickles brilliantly with cider vinegar, red wine, mustard seeds, sugar, bay leaves, and a little ground black pepper. It tastes delicious with cheeses and cold meats, and works perfectly as a Christmas gift.
