Apricot Jam 10 pints to be exact!
I spent Friday canning apricot jam with my mom and sister. This is my very first canning ! I must say by the taste of this jam I'm a natural :) My mom called and said that the apricots on her tree were nice a ripe and asked if I would like to come and can with her! Its a 45min drive to my moms, so I got lunch ready for Roger and packed up the kids and we hit the road.
I thought the peeling would never end :) But it did and it was time to make these fresh off the tree apricots into delicious jam.
So after some smashing, lots of sugar and some roiling boiling ( right Dad?) I was enjoying some jam on my toast for breakfast! Yum!
I am Happy,
