I know last month's challenge was tough, particularly in the midst of a busy summer. But I definitely got a kick out of your results.
This month's remake introduces it's own difficulties, but there is a good chance many of you are already involved in the cooking aspect already. This month, our remake is about canning. Photos of veggies or fruits in vintage glass jars can be so beautiful... but managing the reflections so you can still see the contents of the jar takes some work.

I love these Weck jars in this shot by Becky Luigart-Stayner on the Cooking Light website. In your remake, feel free to use whatever jars you have on hand, and stuff them full whatever you like. Pickling is great, as are jams or sauces. The key is to get your shot to have managed reflections that show the glass and the contents.
If you are new to the monthly photo challenges, head over to the Flickr group for the rules and to introduce yourself.
This challenge will run through the end of August.
