More Jam!

I’ve been working the last couple of days making more jam for this Saturday’s open house.  Today I made strawberry rhubarb jam, apricot raspberry syrup, blackberry chipotle jam, blackberry rhubarb jam, cranberry raspberry jam and apple pie jam.

I love making jam (you might already know that!).  It can be hazardous though.  Today I managed to burn myself 3 times!  Two were little burns from spattering jam (cranberry raspberry jam is notorious for that) and a pretty large steam burn.  I process my jams in a boiling water bath and burned my arm checking on the jars.  I didn’t see the large blister until this evening!  Yikes!  I guess the moral there is to be more careful and use potholders!
