...making jam...11:33 AM
strawberry jam is an essential in this house.
my husband's family made jam every summer all throughout childhood. we have made it with them since we married. last year, we made it a few days after we returned from Colorado. we are blessed with a fantastic fruit market. they bring in some of the most outstanding (often local) regional produce.
we ran out of jam this past weekend. we limped through the week to make sure we had some for waffles on saturday morning. our market had a fantastic sale on strawberries yesterday, so off we went to buy a few flats. i greatly miscalculated the number of pectin boxes needed, so we are only 1/3 of the way finished.
my little helpers were ready to go this morning!
we washed, capped, pureed, mixed and ladled jam while isaac napped.
someone was quite content sneaking berries from the bowl.
