|Smashing strawberries for 1st batch of Jam|
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!|
Here are 4 lbs of berries ready to be frozen. I'll show the last step tomorrow.
While I was waiting for jam to boil I decided to make a batch of fruit leather. It's still cooking, which I'm sure it will be for the next several hours. I made it a little thick. Hope it turns out!
I don't do a lot of canning because well, I'll be honest- I hate it. The whole process. With a passion.
Here's my little helper spending some quality time on her tummy watching Mommy play with all the strawberries. 4 months old already! She was a good sport today, which is a relief.
I still have about 8 lbs in my fridge. More to come tomorrow...
