I could print out but for now I print on a post-it. I write date ingredients notes of procuring the food stuffs and any changes to a recipe that improves ease flavor and nutritional power. I like to write down when it is someone’s favorite. I label all freezer pouches with these facts and have answered a lot of questions by the effort.
The greatest love story is your own. If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win. You are the happiness master of your own mind. Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good. Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness. I may not recognize the significance until some time later. Is my resistance to change really that strong? Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson; Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
A sharpie and the lid is the extent of my labels. Since I don't give out my canning as gifts they don't need to be cute. I just write the name, the date (including year) and if there was multiple batches on the same day and multiple canner loads of the same batch. Did you understand that last part.
It comes more into play when I make Peach or Apricot Nectar. So I make one batch but I have more than enough for one canner load. The first canner load is marked 1/1, second canner load is 2/1. If I make a second batch then the first canner load becomes 1/2 and the second 2/2.
If I am making jam and do multiple batches, since jam usually makes 1 canner load at a time I just write the batch number inside a circle.
Yeah - the avery program will let you add in some clipart or photos to the labels to be cute. I like the idea of at least being able to neatly label the jars with what's inside & the year it was made (to help me to be sure I'm rotating stock properly!) etc.
Just wanted something that looked nice vs the old tape and sharpie method we were using before. Even though we're not selling the jars, it's nice to have good clear & neat labels! :)
I figured I'd label the lids since you tend to have to get new lids after a use or two - whereas with the jars - I didn't want to be fighting to get glue off the glass since those are re-used.
Thought I' see what everyone else did for labels! :)

I use blanks from an office supply printed on my computer for gift jars, Masking tape with a sharpie for home use. Most print programs have a label program on them. a custom printed label on a gift can add to a bottle of homemade wine or that special fruit or jelly.

I use Avery labels and write them out by hand - but since I don't try to sell what I make, I don't have to make room for ingredients - I also use the labels that come with the jars (the first time I use them, anyway -
I usually label the jar, rather than the lid, because I use the plastic reusable screw-on lids to close an opened jar -
