Let's Jam!

I have wanted to make homemade jam since we moved two summers ago. I suppose it has something to do with all of the Amish in the area (they make everything homemade and it's all super tasty) and finally having my own kitchen to use. Since I knew we were going to pick strawberries I knew I would have enough to make some jam.

I was surprised that it really wasn't too hard, even for me... I think the hardest part was not getting the juice everywhere when crushing the berries.

Lots of stirring made me happy...

Bevo had to supervise.

I ended up with 9 containers of jam and I only used half of the berries we picked.
