    My grandparents canned so many things and stored them in their basement for the winter. Most items were actually grown in their garden. Now, even though I love to cook, I can't even really make jam. A dying art.

    And I'm ready for dinner. My mom used to can. We had a fairly large garden. This just looks so natural and like "real food." lol Now I try to buy organics when I can afford it to get something closer to real food. I still can't find a tomato that tastes like a fresh tomato out of the garden 50 years ago, though.mmmm I wish I had one of those, just biting into it with the juice dripping down my face. I was 10. Juice dripping down your face is cute when you are 10 :D

    Cool picture, but it'd be a hell of a lot cooler if there were body parts in there.

    Those are Kilner jars aren't they? A letter 'K' is visible on the box below. My mother (and my grandmother) used to preserve a whole range of fruit and vegetables from the garden. Also blackberries, picked in the countryside by the whole family, and apple slices, to make our favourite blackberry and apple pie!
