I wanted to post a few pictures of the results of last weekend's strawberry jam-making event. I must say that I had a lot of fun! Debra helped me with this first attempt and, with her instruction, I was able to make two batches of strawberry jelly/jam. Fortunately for me she was very patient with me AND I have no pictures of the mess I made. I do, however, have these lovely pictures of the finished product. Each individual jar has a hand-written label; how homey is that?
I hope to make at least one batch of blueberry and one of blackberry later in the summer. I'd love to make peach too, but the peach crop in the Carolinas was hurt a little by the recent cold spell so I'll have to wait and see. But, I guess I should stop rambling about my newfound domesticity. Suffice it to say that I am quite proud with the results of my first jam-making extravaganza. All of the jam jelled and all of the jars sealed - yay!
