I got into canning last year when I found a recipe for High Bush Cranberry Jelly that my grandmother used to make when she was alive. High bush cranberries grow rampantly at my grandfather's farm (other side of the family) and though it's a long process it meant fresh cranberry jelly with Thanksgiving & Christmas dinners and a year of tasting something my family thought died with my grandma.
When we got engaged the favours were something I put a lot of thought into, and some kind of jelly seemed like a great way to really personalize the whole thing. No putting our initials on M&M's for us! We were going to throw down some sweat equity…..and thank god we're having a small wedding, that's all I can say.
