My 1st strawberry jam batch
This Sunday i was a busy little homemaker...I finally had time to can my fresh picked strawberries!! This was my very first time canning and WOW it was so fun!! My Mother in Law canned all morning together...she said that I was born in the wrong time and I should have been a housewife in the pioneer times...I agreed!! I love learning all about the "old ways" Well I believe that the day was a success...we canned 21 jars of strawberry jam and it was delicious. Plus we have three pints left to make strawberry shortcake...so today I plan on baking some homemade buttermilk biscuit this will also be a first recipe, but it will be a wonderful dessert to tonight's dinner. I don't know why but I love to bake and be in the kitchen on rainy days, I like to clean my house from top to bottom and light all my candles and just bake all day. Yeah I agree I'm a dork but it's just a weird thing I like.
