We're Jammin'


We've had an extravaganza like this before...only that time it was baby food we were preparing. This time it was jam. Peach jam, and lots of it!

Amy, Heather and I got together to convert 50 pounds of peaches, 50 pounds of sugar, and 22 packages of pectin into jars of freezer jam. After 4 1/2 hours of sweat, labor, and fussy children the project was completed and the amounts of jam we were left with was astronomical. Refer to picture (that is only one person's portion...multiply by 4)

It was good to have the resident expert (Heather) on hand to direct us. We decided that doing it all in one sha-bang with a group of friends was the only way to sanely make jam. Can't wait to eat my morning toast....or maybe ice cream with peach topping?!?!
