After many hours in a hot field, many more hours in a hot kitchen, and maybe one more hour in a reasonably cool dining room I have adorable jars of jam that are perfect for giving as gifts or hoarding for oneself. Which is what I'm doing so far.
I printed the labels on sticker paper to make it easy on myself.
The red checkered fabric was in my stash so I simply used my pinking shears to cut squares for each jar.
The 'homemade with love' tags were adorable but I didn't end up using them on the jars. I have to admit that I changed my mind about them because I didn't have the right kind of string for tying them around the jars and I didn't want to go to the store and buy some. 'The jars look so cute already,' I told myself and then I whipped out my camera and started snapping away.
Next on the agenda: raspberry and blueberry jam. How about you? Have you ever canned anything? Any suggestions?
