Today I'm making jam

I have wanted to get back into making jams and stuff for quite a while. What usually stopped me was the heat in the kitchen when strawberries and raspberries are usually in season in June and July. However, one of the growers near us has ever bearing berries, that produce crops in September. It is lovely and cool outside, so I can heat up the kitchen, and open the windows to let the heat and the steam out.
So, later on today, these berries will be lovely jars of jam.


  1. I have never made jam but I have a good friend who trades canned salmon (which my husband makes)for jam. It is so wonderful to have homemade jams!

  2. What a nice happenstance!! Canning and the like makes so much more sense in the cooler temps of fall! :)

  3. I'm so envious. Have you ever made freezer jam? I like it best for raspberry jam recipe is every box of Certo pectin


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
