|Smashing strawberries for 1st batch of Jam|
Oh my, is this day over yet?! Wow. I'm exhausted. It's been an incredibly productive day in some aspects. Today was all about strawberries. Tomorrow is all about cleaning my mess up from neglecting anything not having to do with strawberries. Fun times for me, huh?
Both batches of strawberry jam are done. DONE. One jar already went to Nana and Grandpa's house. Some are going to be frozen. Others are being processed in boiling water as I type. One is already half eaten. Seriously, what happened there?! At least I know it tastes good!
|1st batch- done! Yum!|
I don't have a fancy canner or anything- just this nifty little Ball canning device I bought a couple years ago. I can only do the small jars, but it works well and only cost about $15! I don't do a lot of canning because well, I'll be honest- I hate it. The whole process. With a passion.
