Mix ‘N Match Free Printable Canning Labels

Free Mix 'N Match Printable Canning Labels

As you might have realized, no jam that comes out of my kitchen is finished until it has a pretty label. The label not only labels (duh), preventing you from mixing up which was which and what was what, but it also instantly takes your jams up a notch on the gift-awesomeness scale. Sure, what’s on the outside doesn’t actually make the inside taste any better, but that’s beside the point.

Unsatisfied with naked jars, I wanted to distinguish my 3 different blueberry jams from one another, but without necessarily designing three separate labels. This mix-and-match system was what I came up with – it’s modern and colorful and incredibly flexible.

Free Printable Blueberry Jam Labels

Seeing as I’ve yet to offer any canning printables this year (I utilized some stock patterns in my other labels this year and such things come with licenses that prohibit me from sharing, unfortunately). HOWEVER, I do think this ultimate mix-and-match set might just make up for it.

I’ve racked my brain to think of any and all possible fruits and flavors you might use in your canning experiments this summer. Balsamic Cherry? Black Pepper Strawberry? Vanilla Peach Rhubarb? Let your imagination run wild.

Additionally – because my brain-power fizzled out at two full pages of possibilities, I’m asking YOU: what did I miss? Leave a comment and let me know what fruits or add-ins you’d like to see, and I’ll add a 3rd page to the set with your suggestions!

    Chocolate? I feel like that’s becoming a more popular flavor to add to canned goods…

    These are so fun! I’d like to put in a request for “salt” – because I’m working on batches of herb salts.

    I second the request for ginger. Other suggestions (not all for jam or preserves, but all for canning!) :

    Pickled
    Cucumbers
    Carrots
    Butter (like for apple or strawberry butter)
    Syrup
    Sauce
    Juice
    Chutney
    Jam
    Preserves

    Please and thanks for considering!

    I second the nectarine and cinnamon requests! How about cardamom (spiced is a little too vague once I have a cupboard full of items.

    I love you mix and match label idea here. I’m going to try and print some, I make a ton of jams, but I’m a bit on the hopeless side in the follow through on the tech stuff. Herbs really do pair well with most of the fruit. Last summer I made blueberry-basil and it still is one of my favs. Thanks.

    I love these labels!! I would like Pear added–i have a friend with a big pear tree so I make lots of ginger pear butter. I guess I am also seconding the request for ginger and butter. my other fave is strawberry balsamic thyme, but you have that covered. I was just thinking of some way to recreate your label because it looks so cute. thanks for making it easy!

    I make a plum jam with Grand Marnier. You might try adding Grand Marnier to your labels.

    I just started to learn to can this week! Actually, all I’ve done so far is make jam, still nervous about the actual preserving part (and I need a larger pot). I love your flexible label designs and – thanks to you – I already own full page labels to print them onto. :-) Now I need to know…where do I find these nice jars you’re using??

    I like your blog, by the way. I’m new to it.

    These are darling! I think I’ll have to figure out how to do it myself, since I mostly can using wild edibles and what’s in my garden. I doubt you’d have many other calls for elderberry, mulberry, black raspberry, gooseberry, currant, wild plum, blackberry, rose hip, dandelion flower, wild grape and such. :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Late to the party here, but these are FANTASTIC! Thank you so much. Love your site, and always look forward to your end-of-summer preserving posts.

    I would have loved to have had Elderberry (as opposed to ‘flower’) and also Rose Hips, two things I love to forage for and make jam and syrup out of. I swear by Pomona’s Pectin and can’t wait to try a few versions with that. I may try to find a white marker to write in those labels on the blanks, as black was too hard to read.

    thanks again!
