It is that time of year! Time to start thinking about all the wonderful fruits and veggies I can can! My BFF Courtney and I canned SO MANY things a few years ago. Needless to say, with all that is involved with premature twins (not to mention living in a hospital for 8 months) I haven't really had the opportunity to do much since then. SO I am excited to get back to it!
For Enrichment Night a couple of weeks ago we taught about Food Storage and made some freezer jam for everyone. It was totally motivating for me to get back to it! So, after a Costco run (the local Strawberry Field is not quite ready for picking) I had plenty of Strawberries and apricots, and then in about 30 min. I had TONS of jam! YUMMY!
So, today's recipe resides in a box of pectin! Go get some of your favorite fruit and a box of pectin and VIOLA!
Well, I guess I should also mention sugar! OH MY SUGAR! I am now going to search out the best jam recipe that doesn't require more sugar than fruit! YIKES! I will let you know when I find one! :) Until then, pop some homemade bread in the oven (or bread maker) and have a little treat!
