Vanilla Scented Nectarine Preserves

Vanilla Scented Nectarine Preserves

I managed to foil the neighborhood scavengers, thwart (somewhat) a very determined and gluttonous squirrel and even impeded an onslaught of Japanese beetles to safeguard the makings for a double-batch of my vanilla-scented nectarine preserves made from home harvested fruit. Victory (and its spoils) are mine!




I’ve been practicing my canning skills.  Here’s a few things I’ve made so far:

My first attempt…with lemons and lavender from my garden.

Lemon Lavender Marmalade

My second attempt:

Strawberry Balsamic Coulis

And this weekend, with fruit from my garden:

Spiced Nectarine Butter
