Christmas Canning 2016

Since my husband became interested in canning, he has been making soups, stews, sauce and fruit to stock and we don't have to cook every day.
So for this Christmas, we decided to make a big batch of fruit preserve to give as gifts.
The advantage of canning is to be able to make a big batch in one day, and it will last in the can for a year.
He tried different recipes, and pears in orange-flavored liqueur and apple juice had the best taste. We also added cranberries, apricots and thin slices of orange peel.

After they are all properly cooked following canning fruit instructions, I made the labels.
They make pretty gifts, and I think they are pretty tasty.
It is fun to gift your friends with something you make. We hope everyone likes.
