Hahaha, get it?! Oh, I kill me!
I can't help it that my jokes suck, I have been too busy making jam to come up with some good ones. In the last few weeks, I have made 8 pints of strawberry jam, 9 half-pints of sour cherry preserves, and this weekend I made 4 pints of apple preserves.
The apple preserves were a kind of, by the seat of my pants kind of thing. I had gotten a huge amount of organic apples several weeks ago (maybe a month?) and we never got through them all. So, I pushed em through my juicer and made jelly-jam. What came out of the juicer was like a really liquidy apple sauce stuff, and I don't have any jelly bags (nor the patience for them), so all of it went into the pot.
I debated putting cinnamon into the preserves, but I decided against it. If I want cinnamon on my biscuits and jam, then I can put it on there, but I can't take it out.
So anyways, I think we are set on jam for a long, LONG time. We have a grand total of 16.5 pints of jam in the pantry and about 4 pints of all sorts in the fridge. And my neighbor is going to let me come over and steal grapes from his vines, so I'm thinking that will be another 4-5 pints.
Jam-akin me crazy!
