​Recipe of the Month

“Sour cherries are in season and my favourite way to preserve their wonderful flavour is our Evans Cherry Jam,” says Debra, ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen Community Educator and Professional Home Economist. “The jam can be made now or the sour cherries can be washed, pitted, crushed, measured into 4 cup portions and frozen in freezer bags to be made into jam during the winter months. This month, I will also be canning Dilly Green Beans and Cucumber Hot Dog Relish – these are two of many preserving recipes on our website. If you don’t feel like pulling out your boiling water canner there are small batch recipes for refrigerator and freezer pickles, too.”
