One of my local produce markets smells like ripe strawberries when you walk in the front door. That’s the official cue: the jam season is upon us.
T and I piled our cart full of strawberries and lemon and set to work on Sunday and Monday We make a lemon berry jam that is delicious. Last year, we made more than a dozen jars and we ran out at Christmas. This year, we plan to have even more jam at the ready for gifts.
By the time we finished on Monday night, we had 23 jars of lemon berry jam just like these two jars.
Homemade jam is delicious. Come a cold day in December, this jam thick on a slice of bread brings back the delicious taste of summer. That's happy!
