I’m not much of a gardener, no green thumb for this girl.
But, give me a canner, some beautiful jars, a few lids and I will put some serious food by.
I can make jam like nobody’s business. Pickled asparagus or zucchini relish? Bring it on! Got a tree full of cherries you want to get rid of? Give me a call. Your box full of tomatoes doesn’t scare me, I smell some salsa in your future. Peaches, pears, or plums, I’ll happily can them all.
But, sometimes one of those beauties will be hard to open. That’s where my love of sewing comes in. Who knew a little piece of rubber shelf liner and a scrap of your favorite fabric could help open a jar?

Personally, I think these would be a great gift. Plus it’s a perfect way to use up some fabric scraps.

Happy sewing, canning and easy jar opening!
