Canning Totals & Links...Year End 2012

In an effort to tie up a few loose ends before year's end, I've decided to post a "year end totals" of my preservation antics this year.  It'll be short and to the point, with little bluster...just some links so you can find any recipes that interest you.

Of some recipes I made many jars (there are only 2-3 people in the household at any given time these days) and of some I only made only a few to see if the recipe was a keeper or not.

This includes a continuation of my July post.
