I spent yesterday afternoon making jam. It took about a hour, maybe two tops. I didn't use a recipe with pectin or do the whole sterilizing/sealing jars thing figuring I'd only be making about 3 jars and they will be eaten in the next month or so...we used half of the first jar this morning if that's any indication!

I used a recipe from my favorite Gourmet cookbook (the huge one with the yellow cover if you're wondering), which is also available on-line here.

And then my favorite easy biscuits. So good with jam, but also can be used for strawberry shortcake. Similar recipe is here.

Yesterday my work was featured on Poppytalk! Thank you, Jan and Earl!
