sticky red fingers

We began the night with two gigantic bowls of strawberries and several stalks of rhubarb.

I was the designated knife wielder and therefore spent most of the night hunched at the table feverishly slicing stems off the strawberries and cutting the rhubarb into more reasonable lengths.

Meghan was in charge of endless stirring and scooping.  My Auntie Mame directed us all night since she's the jam expert.  I think it's safe to say that we all enjoyed a very successful but looong night of canning.  Several hours and varying degrees of arm ache later we had churned out jars and jars of strawberry and strawberry rhubarb jam.  Tune in tomorrow for the finished product!
