We invited Darla over for this little adventure in the garden.
This was going to be a project. First I explained to the girls that the jars need to be *very* clean. So we laid them in the sink with a mixture of hot water and bleach with a pinch of dish soap then headed out to the greenhouse where the berries await us!

After the mashing was done we set the mixture of pectin and berries on the stove to boil. Adding a bit of sugar later on. This needs to boil for 5-10 minutes or so. So, in the meantime we went and made our very own labels for our jam.

|Filling the jars.|
Finally -- the end result! Our very own organic strawberry jam! We brought a basket of jam and fresh eggs to a few close friends. We'll be making more flavors soon!
