Jam Done

It's all done, there are 11 pints and 4 half pints not counting what we have already ate!!!!Tee-Hee! This was fun and they are really nice to look at....If you could smell my house...yummmie!
I started out this morning freezing peas from the garden....then Bell Peppers and Chili peppers. And a little later when it cools down a little outside, I will finish my Apricot Jam. I have all my Jars & lids boiled....I am looking forward to some treats made from this Jam during our long cold winter. And I will give some to my kids and their family. Arney reminded me this morning that I will be one busy gal when the Tomato's are ready....Salsa time! Wish you were here, we could have some tea and bis quits with Jam.

I'll be right over with my biscuits! Maybe you have something we could spread on them????

Oh so yummy!! (And I love those fat little jars ... I'm such a sucker for cute! - lol) I agree; there is something very satisfying about eating things we have made ourselves.

Maaarrrry ~ I'm such a goober! I couldn't figure out why I was so far behind on all your posts. I realize I don't get around daily, but I'm not usually months and months behind! I never updated the link in bloglines; and the old link - of course - wasn't showing any new posts. I'm so sorry!

We're all set now ... I came here from bloglines, so I know the link is correct!

Oh Mary Mary! What I wouldn't give at this very moment for a spread of your jam. But then you mention making winter treats and I thought of my Big Mama's apricot fried pies. Thanks

I'm on my way! I love apricot jam. Tea and bisquits sounds yummy to me....or you could just turn me loose in your orchard and I could eat my fill of fruit!!

OH wow Mary!!! What a busy girl you have been and its sure looks delicous!!! I wish I was there eating some biscuits and apricot jam with you. I sure hope I can do this next year. Hoping my life will calm down and I can have a hugh garden and lots of canned goodies and a freezer full of veggies. Keep on showing us your treats,,I Love fresh Salsa too!

Wow, are you ambitious. The apricot jam looks delicious. My grandma and mom never canned, so I never learned how.
