A Jam Packed Weekend

This weekend's itinerary included the usual cleaning, laundry, cheerleading practice, one football game and a realization.

The freezer was holding four pounds of strawberries and two pounds of blueberries. My plan for Wednesday (my garbage pick up) was to completely empty my freezer and refrigerator.

For weeks we have been making minimal purchases at the grocery and doing our best to empty out the space.

Therefore, I realized, it was jam making weekend.

It amazes me how four pounds of strawberries and six cups of sugar only makes four pints of strawberry jam.

This is the blueberry. Which I'm thinking is going to make a wicked spread this winter for the much loved pancakes.
