Happy 4th of July!

Jam Day

Since today is a holiday in the US, the hubby and I both had today off work. We put the day to good use making jam from our CSA fruit.

Four hours and two (more) trips to the store later we were the proud owners of 21.5 pints of jam. To put that in perspective, that's equivalent to 43 jars of store bought jam. We also made up another batch of vegetable stock, but we ran out of steam (hah!) before making it to the pressure canning so we will do that this weekend.

The picture above shows our flavor spectrum. On the left is vegetable stock followed by black/blue berry jam, strawberry jam, strawberry/peach jam, vanilla peach jam, and peach jam.
