Fresh Strawberry Jam

I just made some homemade strawberry jam. We do not have a large garden, so I purchased some delicious red strawberries at our local farmers' market. I took one jar of jam to the farmers' market, and gave it to the woman who has been selling me strawberries.

Homemade Jams

I haven't had a chance to blog for a while. I have received fresh apricots and plums from my neighbors. Too many to eat, so I have been making jam.

There is nothing like fresh homemade jam. So far, I have made plum, apricot-peach, and peach jam. The nectarines, peaches, and strawberries are calling for something to be made from the delicious fruit. Our wild California Red Grapes will be ripe, so the task to turn the small grapes into jelly will begin. The grapes are small and have seeds, so they are not suitable for eating. Last year, we harvested 25 lbs. of grapes. Not sure how much we will get off the bushes this year, but the bushes are filled with bunches of grapes.
