Well from a few post ago, you can see that I attempted to make strawberry jam. Since I don't follow directions well I got about 7 jars of strawberry syrup. Let me tell you that I am not easily defeated so I thought I would try just one more time to see if I can really make freezer jam.
Here are my 2 cherry trees. Since the branches are bending from the weight of the cherries, I thought what the heck I will only be out the cost of the bag of sugar and 2 boxes of pectin.
I pitted (really need to invest in a cherry pitter, if there really is such a thing any more), mashed stirred, and boiled just like the directions told me (this time) I followed those things to the T.
See my son in the background with a worried look on his face.
I gotta say, I am impressed with myself! It turned out GREAT! It went so well I made two batches. That is 5 pounds of cherries before pitted and 2 pounds of sugar. We will have jam till next year when the cherries are ready again!
