Now that summer is upon us, produce stands and farmer’s markets are displaying delicious, local fruits and vegetables. If you are a canner, you can have the taste of freshly picked fruits all year long by making delicious jams and jellies.

Whether you keep the jams for yourself or share them with friends, it’s important to keep the jars labeled so you can tell your strawberries from your cherries. Use your HP printer and fantastic Avery labels to create personalized labels for your canned goods.
