Jam Session

It's time to be cleaning out the big freezer (and defrosting it soon. Ugh!) and using up the frozen berries from last summer. I tend to get a little carried away at the u-pick farms and we still have lots of berries. So, after our trip to the farmers market this morning, Laura and I spent several hours making jam.

Laura has a list of things she wants me to teach her to do while she's home from college for a few months (on her days off from work) and "How to make jam" is on the list. We made three batches: Raspberry, Raspberry-Strawberry, and Strawberry-Rhubarb, for a total of 22 jars. We sampled all three and I think the Strawberry-Rhubarb is my favorite.

Stay tuned...I think breadbaking is next.

Jam is one thing I have had some success making. Richard is almost done with school so if you need a berry picking partner, give me a call.
