First get lots and lots of sugar. LOL It is similar to feeding the bees! Tonight we made peach, blueberry, raspberry and strawberry jam. There's a "bent can" store in town and often they have frozen fruit for $1/lb or less. My wife says making jam was kind of a Christmas tradition for her family, so tonight we did. Put the jars and lids in boiling water: Mix some fruit into the sugar: Some of the finished product: More of the finished product: We heard pop and ping for a while tonight when the jars would seal. I can't wait to have some biscuits. It'll be tough deciding jam or honey!
