jam day!

It's jam day!

Mom and I are making our first ever jam today. We are starting out with my favorite, strawberry. The local strawberry crop was hard hit by rain and hail this year so this may be the last of them at the farmers market. So we can't put it off any longer - jam here we come!

So far so good. No major disasters, the first batch has actually set as far as I can tell and it's now in the pot being "preserved". So no major disasters and Mom & I are having a good time.

1And since I'm using girliegirl32786's official Jampange strawberry jam recipe I'm wearing my tiara. 'Cause I can. :>

Hee, it's JAM DAY here, too! Got three quarts of strawberries and some rhubarb. I may try to make a batch each of strawberry & strawberry-rhubarb jam today. :D

We're waiting til this evening to do it, because a) it might not be as my goodness so hot out, and b) DH will be on hand to document the process (and help hull & slice berries)!

Simply stunning in your tiara ;)

Yay! I'm so glad you are trying your hand at it. Its addicting.

So does this mean you are bringing some for Jampagne at UTR? :P

It's completely addicting! I'm already planning blackberry jam when the local blackberries start coming in. Aren't you glad you won't have to be my jam pimp anymore? Of course I still don't have access to wineberries... *hinthint*

I'm thinking Jampange at UTR can be arranged... :> The real question is which of us is bring the jam for CosCol? I'll thumb-wrestle you for it! :P

Well, wineberry season is almost upon us! Just a few more weeks. I've already started to bug my mom and she said she will bring me some canes to plant in my garden. Yay! It is so addicting!

Hmmm...maybe we will have to have two different flavors at CosCol. ;)
