Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These...

Ahhhh.... There is nothin' like the sweet taste of fresh berries! I'm goin' to make a Three Berries Jam and Strawberry and Banana Jam today. My mouth is waterin' just typin' the words!

I don't can much but have decided its time to start. With these continuin' high oils prices; food prices will go through the roof, especially produce. Its time to get back to basics.

I bought me the "Ball Blue Book of Preserving." What a wealth of info in this paperback! Although I must admit I chuckled when I quickly glanced at the title and read it as "Blue Ball Book of Preserving."

My only fear is that I won't can properly and we'll end up in the E.R. havin' our stomachs pumped. But I'm confident I won't (intentionally) poison anyone.

So, wish me luck!! If I'm not back in a few days... Call the paramedics.

The berries look yummy, and the jam sounds wonderful! You sure can't beat homemade Jam!

Good luck, and let us all know how it turns out!

are you sending some my way...I can and I have found (and I am sure your "blue ball" book will tell you..I tip my jars upside down once they are packed and lids screwed on and they have had their hot water bath...It seems to help them so that you get that "pop" and you know they are sealed..and if they don't back in the bath they go and we try it again..I love hearing the sound of the "pop"...anyway you do what works looks and sounds so yummy..we have the wild blackberries that we go and pick in and around our neighborhood and I make freezer jam...very easy to do...and if you have the freezer space you are set to go...:)

I'm with you... I'm ready for a garden, getting back to canning like I did when I was girl at home with mom. The food always tasted so good.
