February Can Jam

Neither of us were all that into the Can Jam ingredient this month. We didn't see any carrots at the Farmers' Market and I stupidly forgot to check the Co-op list in time. We could have ordered them from Country to Town Market for $2/bunch, but instead we were stuck using grocery store carrots. Still, we fully intended to plow ahead and make the recipe for Dilled Carrots from the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. They sounded tasty enough, but not anything to get too excited over. All of that changed when I saw this recipe posted by another can jammer at Put A Lid On It. I sent Mason a message at work that said "Carrot and Onion Sandwich Slaw" and he readily agreed that it needed to be made by us immediately. I hope that she doesn't mind us borrowing her entry. Our jars certainly don't look as nice as hers--and it's almost impossible to get a decent photo anywhere in this house in the evening (I'll try to get a better shot tomorrow), but I'm still very happy with the results of this month's project. We may seek out other carrot canning recipes in the future, but I'm pretty sure that we'll be sticking with this slaw.



  1. wow thanks! it's so good, too. (i opened one jar prematurely). the carrots make it a little sweeter than i expected, but i think it will be an instant family favorite.
