Jammin'



I made my very first batches of jam for the season. I picked about 60 quarts of strawberries at the end of the season for free! One of our growers lets me pick berries and cherries each year. Got to love that.

So far, I've made Strawberry, Strawberry Vanilla, Strawberry Rhubarb, Raspberry and Sweet cherry jam. I still have lots of sweets to pit and then tarts too. Plus I plan on picking more raspberries and blueberries. Of course, there is still peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums and apples still to come. The freezer is full of strawberries to make more jam later and for making daiquiri's, mmmmm.

Michele,

Oh what tasty toast you'll have. How will you eat all that stuff? One year we made spearmint jelly, one of the best jellies I have ever tasted. We missed the cherries this year, Meg rents out her house and they got the cherries or the birds did.
