We Be Jammin'

The quest for healthy, homemade living continues...and a trip to visit my parents taught me the art of making jam! Mom and I made a batch of blackberry jam yesterday, and today I went it alone, whipping up some raspberry. Lucky for me, their neighbors have an abundance of raspberries, which we happily picked.

Yummmm!



Seven little jars ready to eat!

Also, I just realized my 1 year blog anniversary is next week. Look for a giveaway in a few days...one of the items will definately be a jar of jam! See you soon.

It's that time of year isn't it. Looking good too. Never done this, but we have to cut the list off somewhere, plus our local farm stand does with their own fruits, so I can support them and eat well too. xox Corrine
