Jam and jelly time

Today is my traditional jam- and jelly-making day. Throughout the summer months I collect, wash, chop, and freeze berries as they come into season, and on Black Friday I haul them all out of the deep freezer, wash the canning jars, and spend the day putting up a year’s supply of yumminess.

Since it takes awhile, I keep a small knitting project handy, safely on the opposite side of the stove.

This year I’m making grape jelly and several jams: sour cherry, blackberry, raspberry, and my favorite, strawberry. I think I’ll do the strawberry as freezer jam this time, though – it tastes (and looks) so much nicer than when it’s cooked down.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
