Sooo, last night was jam night. Here are the results of my work. For anyone that has not made jam before and might think it is hard, really it is not. It is a time commitment once you start, because you literally can not walk away form that pot and you have to stir, stir, stir. I would have taken some pictures of the making but i was tied to the pot. No extra hands. This batch of jam was the first time in a few years of jamming that i finally decided to just relax and not stress myself out about it. Once everything is prepared i usually feel like a spaz trying to get everything done and done just right...last night i told myself to calm down and just enjoy the process. I really did and this time i did not make a mess or burn myself, thank goodness. It was nice to get it done so fast and smoothly, and all 9 jars sealed!!! All you need is 4 pints of berries, some pectin(I use sure-jel), some jars and sugar. Follow the directions in the box of sure-jel and "viola" you have jam. I think strawberry jam is my favorite.
