You've been busy! Beautiful picture of the light glistening through the jars of jam!

Wow great idea and looks delicious.


The jam looks great. For years, I have been wanting to learn how to can foods. The botulism thing is scary! I decided that I am not going to take up canning until we move to a real house someday. A little NY condo has no room for this hobby.


I have also had the summer adventure of canning strawberry jam. I went picking two weeks ago, while daydreaming I ended up picking 25 pounds of berries in two hours. Needless to say I have more jam that I will probably eat in a year. Canning is not so scary, I learned from a friend a few years back. After a few canning opportunities with my her I feel confident that I am not going to kill anyone with my yummy jam.


Yum - it all sounds delicious (we have NO good Mexican restaurants here!). Those gummy worms are making my mouth water :-)
And the jam looks delicious!


Hi! Chris' gf here (from Strive? ha, long intro). Quick tip that I heard from my sister about 20 minutes ago- at 3pm everything goes on sale at Eastern market like woah. Beth (the sister) bought TONS of food for $13, because the vendors need to get rid of everything! How sweet is that?!

Oh- and please let John know that I can get him a 60 gallon plastic drum if he wants to make his own rain barrel- free! Best thing ever! :)


those candies look delicious and so summery with those bright colors! that jam looks delicious and i would have bought all those strawberries too!


The jam looks great. That's on my to do list too along with making pickles as soon as the cucumbers are ready. Such a great picture of the gummies!


Shazam! I know that is probably incorrect usage of that word, but that is what came to mind when I saw the GIANT candy! Wow, it sounds like you had a really wonderful morning. I can almost taste that jam; it's so beautiful. I have all of my grandmother's canning supplies. Yet one more thing on my "must do eventually" list. :~)


gummy worms and strawberries and strawberry jam!!! I picked strawberries this past weekend, but I didn't get around to making the jam-hopefully I will be able to make raspberry jam in a couple weeks!


You have been busy! Those gummy worms look delish! I've never seen those kind but I do love the sour gummy worms. YOur strawberry jam looks amazing. I love the picture of your roomies... sleeping! Too funny.

Hilarious -- I LOVE those cats on the sofa arms like the lions at the Art Institute, gaurding their treasure. And yes, while the lazeabouts slumber, we are slaving away in the kitch. . . sigh. I actually said to my husband after the jammaking, "Aren't you totally psyched that you are married to someone who knows how to make jam for you?" He said, ". . . Yeah."

Only corgi-love impresses him, I guess.


I love strawberry freezer jam and sour gummies, too. :)


Stawberry freezer jam is the best! It taste soooo much better than the kind where you cook the berries. (And I can appreciate the photo of your "roommates" taking a nap while you work. I can't tell you how many times I've walked in on a similar scene with my husband and two cats!)
