We spent the morning making our strawberry jam. Freckles cut the strawberries and helped mashing them down as I did all the stirring, which seemed like forever since we did two batches. I think after the many years I have been canning the hardest part would have to be in the stirring over the hot boiling lava fruit. Nah, it's not reallly that bad...I guess you can say it is my least favorite part of the whole process.
Yet, so well worth it!
The magical part of canning is in the end as your jars are cooling off...you anticipate each lid to POP! Once you hear that...You can breath, knowing you did it all right! After that we put our cute little fabric squares and tags on them...As a blogger friend mentioned to me they will surely look like prize winning jam...I agree..They are so cute, they belong in a Faire! LOL!
They really are quite charming with the fabric on them.
Freckles is looking forward to her
peanut butter & jelly sandwich for lunch tomorrow!
I think I just might have me one too!!!
I know I have said this before, but if you have never tried your hand at canning...You should...It is fun and rewarding.You will never go back to store bought jam again if you tasted home made!
Have a lovely day!!!
