I figure we go through about 1 jar per week of jam so I like to make enough to last the year. Usually I'm making strawberry also, but I think I missed out on local strawberries this year with our wedding and company in June. I guess I may have to break down and buy a jar or two if I want some strawberry for variety. Bob's favorite is blackberry and Melody usually gifts him with several jars for his July birthday. This makes me very happy as I really hate to pick blackberries!
Here is some of the finished product!
Here is a pot of apricot and plum before I stirred it up!
The finished jam is such a pretty color!
