jam packed

sticky equipment after jam-making

the leftovers

I was just organized enough last year to have created a record of what preserves we had sitting around at the end of the summer, so unless we had eaten a tremendous amount between processing in June and July and recording in August, I can safely say we're doing even better this year than last.

With all the strawberries I got we put up 12 pints of strawberry jam, against seven last year; eight pints of blueberry versus last year's four; and two pints of raspberry, something we didn't even preserve last year (though we did make raspberry freezer jam). Up next is relish: there are six big yellow zucchinis sitting on the counter and another one ready to harvest, so I'd better get going!


Wow! I feel pretty darn lazy... but mostly super impressed!
