Pt 2…

It’s 10:30 and the jam is setting, I hope…this is one reason I don’t make jams often because sometimes it ends up being syrup, which isn’t bad but would rather have the jam. I didn’t have enough jars so ended up putting them in plastic so will just make them freezer jams. Plus I’ll have some to give away too. Want to see?

The beginning of the cooking. Then the milling. Cooking and Joss wanting some. I save some (in the yellow bowl) for PBJ sandwiches later on, (if it sets) It’s still very soft.

Now to the tomatoes. That is after we go outside and visit with grandma. I have a fall flag for her to hang and Joss needs to get outside and play. It’s 43* now and sunny so we’ll go and do for a bit.

Hope you’re day is going good. Nope, I didn’t over eat or eat the horse. So far had an apple, shortly it’s lunch time. YEAH!!! Take care my friends, Blessings.

My grandmother used to make jam but I've never tried it. I just don't have that much patience.

43 degrees? WHAT?!

I used to make alot of jam when our kids were little. It was so fun, but HOT work. Loved my crab apple jelly. Did you ever make any jelly?? Yep, cold here in MN!

Okay...I WANT chickens! I've been trying to convince my husband that we NEED chickens. And a bat house. And a bee hive. *sigh* I'm afraid I married a city boy.

I've never made jam before. Now that I think of it, I don't think I've ever made ANYTHING from scratch before. This sounds fun! I love home made jam.. mmm..
