This is my jam bubbling away. Strawberry, yum!
This is my canner – an old enamled stock pot. It holds two quart bottles, which is perfect because that’s how much each batch of jam makes. I was only able to make two quarts because I ran out of sugar, but we bought some yesterday afternoon and the canning will commence again later today.
I love this. It’s messy but satisfying. I feel like I am feeding my family healthier options through my own efforts. Ok, so it’s only jam for now, but it will be veggies soon enough. Exciting! I know, I’m a dork, but it’s the small things that make me happy.
