Yesterday at 5:00 p.m. Mommy, Rachel, and I all started making jam with all our strawberries from the farm. It was a long process, but very fun and a great way to work together! We worked to 8:30. All our other siblings played outside and we worked! For dinner Mommy made PB&J and we ate standing while they ate on the picnic table! Daddy was at a meeting so he missed the excitement. And to top it off Rachel sang the Star Spangled Banner at the top of her lungs.

Before when we made jam there was a ton of foam at the top. We didn't know what it was so Mommy asked Mrs. Brodock (from Teaching Good Things- she's a follower) what to do about it. Her daughter looked at us and said, "try it again". She was right. If you make a mistake pick yourself up, dust off, and try again. Think it through and do over. We read up on it, added some butter, and we have... NO foam! 

Thank You Olivia!!!

You may wonder what she is doing? She is crushing strawberries the old fashioned way! We have no potato masher!

Did you water-bath-can those without a metal deal in the bottom of the pan to keep the cans off direct heat? (I am curious because I have wanted to learn to can, but haven't done it yet - this is my year!)
This looked like a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing!
