One of the ways of being more self-sufficient is to preserve your harvest. This may involve canning or freezing the things you grow yourself or perhaps you buy from the local Farmer’s Market or local farm stands. There are many canning recipes for June.bulk buying, pantry, frugal tips canning recipe for June

 

Rhubarb is one of the first crops in my garden that needs preserving. I grow much more rhubarb than I need. In the past I have even bartered rhubarb for bread!self sufficient, canning recipes for June

 

There are many ways to enjoy rhubarb right out of the garden but I also enjoy preserving rhubarb to enjoy later in the year. Rhubarb is easily frozen and does not require thawing before using it in a recipe.canning recipes for June

 

Besides having frozen rhubarb in the freezer there are also several canning recipes I make. My favorite canning recipe for June is my special Rhubarbeque Sauce. It is perfect on grilled pork or chicken. You can always find this special sauce in my pantry.canning recipe for June

 

Another favorite canning recipe is Apple Rhubarb Chutney. I have a favorite canning cookbook called Small Batch Canning. The recipes in this book only make small batches which is perfect for my husband and I.canning recipes for June

 

The last rhubarb canning recipe is Rhubarb Jam. I love this jam; it is equally good on chicken or on a piece of toast for breakfast!canning recipes for June

 

Other canning recipes for June involve strawberries. We have a small strawberry patch and a large field full of field strawberries. Besides freezing strawberries I also make a wonderful Strawberry Fig Jam. This recipe is another one from the book Small Batch Preserving. They said, “This jam is so good it disappears from the shelf. The fresh figs lend an amazing texture and taste to the strawberries. Be sure to make as much of it as jar and cupboard space allow whenever you can get your hands on fresh figs.” It is my favorite jam and never lasts long enough!canning recipes for June

 

If you haven’t used all your strawberries making jam, another canning recipe for June is Strawberries in Vanilla Syrup. This syrup is perfect drizzled over plain yogurt or served with pound cake, a little bit of summertime to enjoy in the winter.canning recipes for June

You only need a water bath canner and you’re good to go! Take your first step toward being self-sufficient and try one of these canning recipes fro June.

I grow my rhubarb in a large container so it doesn’t produce much. I freeze bits at a time until I have enough for a strawberry rhubarb crisp. Usually I can do this about three times during a season, but it’s still fun to get a bit of my own to eat. – Margy

Margy,
As long as you have enough for some strawberry rhubarb crisp! 🙂

I like rhubarb, but my zone is too hot for it. Instead I concentrate on strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. I’ve got to get my tart on somewhere. 🙂

Maria,
Enjoy all those delicious berries even if you don’t have rhubarb!
