We've been having ourselves some jam makin' around here... strawberry jam that is. Below is a picture of the batch I made tonight, because...
... the first batch I made Monday turned out to be strawberry sauce. I played around too much with the recipe and it did'nt gel as it should have but it made a delicious strawberry sauce for making strawberry shortcake next winter and sauce over vanilla ice cream. Yum ! One thing that I learned - you have to be exact with your mesurements of ingredients when making jam.
So far this week (since we went to the U-Pick on Sunday) we had strawberry muffins, have 3 large bags full of whole strawberries in the freezer for making pies and smoothies next winter, strawberry sauce, strawberry jam and a whole lot of berries in cream... for meals. Yup, I said for meals with homemade rolls I made Monday.
Below - I could'nt resist, this is our honeysuckle right outside the window where I am presently sitting to be on this computer. I opened the window just to smell the aroma - it is heavenly.
Wishing everyone a good Thursday tomorrow !
