I made apricot-pineapple jam last week —— 10 pots worth of delicious jam.
Making jam is one of the most pleasing elements of summer. The smell of hot jam on the stove is heavenly.
When the pots of jam come out of the water bath to cool on the counter, the sound of the seals as they pop is one of the happiest sounds of summer.
These jars will be stored on the shelves in the basement, at the ready for warm slices of freshly-toasted bread, fresh scones, and Winter gift-giving. That’s happy!
