Blogtoberfest (Day 26)
Ok so it is not officially Summer yet but there are masses of strawberries in the shops and I just couldn't resist them. So, I broke out the jam-making gear and got cooking!
Into the pot they go - getting nice and mushy (yes, that is a technical jam-making term!)
And mushier and mushier ...
I fished out my old jam funnel - it has been a few years since it has seen the light of day so it took a bit of fossicking!
And the finished product.
Yummo! The kitchen smelt divine for hours afterward. Doing this brought back such fun memories of a time when I had small children, living in a town in the hills where we grew a fantastic assortment of berries. In the Summer if the kids were out of eyesight I always knew I would find them flopped belly-down in the berry patches, gorging themselves on handfuls of strawberries, loganberries and raspberries. It's a good life.
