Jam Jar Winners!
After I put up my last post, I thought I better go and count how many jars of jam I have in the cupboard. So I took myself down to the basement where we have a second set of kitchen cabinets that serves as my pantry area.
I’ve been making jam for about a year now. We eat, on average, a jar of jam a week. All those pieces of toast and Pb&Js really add up after awhile. I jam whatever is in season at the time. So, I made berry jams and peach jams last summer. Then, in the fall I made some pear butter and in the winter, I made marmalade. That’s not so bad, but a jar of jam a week, it is not.
So, this year I decided I had to up my game. But, I think I went a little overboard. I had to count and recount several times to make sure I was doing it right.
Are you ready for the final count?
That’s right, you read it right.
That’s when I decided that I was going to award everyone who made a guess a jar of jam (of course it helped that there weren’t too many guesses–what’s up with that? Don’t you guys like jam?)
So, if you made a guess, I will be emailing you and you get to choose from this list of jams (and yes, I’m listing them so everyone will know what they missed)
Lemony Pineapple Pear with Vanilla
Cherry Grapefruit with Vanilla
Peachy Cherry Vanilla
Lemony Blueberry Plum
Wow-and this doesn’t include a few other types of jam that I have made, but have very little of (meaning less than 4 jars) and therefore, I must hoard it–sorry!
Well, now that I’ve got my jam situation under control, I have to go tackle this:
25 pounds of Roma tomatoes for $10 at the Farmer’s Market. Tomato sauce, here I come!
