I have been sick, and all the commotion of chasing the rabbit and feeding the pigs took a lot out of me this morning. After feeding the children breakfast, washing clothes, and feeding the children lunch, I had to take a nap. After getting up, I decided to tackle a project I have been wanting to do for a long time. I have put it off for fear of not getting it right and making a mess of things. Can you guess what it was? Here is a clue:
Yep! I decided to conquer my fear and try my hand at making preserves! I bought strawberries earlier in the week, but I only needed a few of them. I had just enough leftover to make two jars of preserves. They didn't turn out clear and pretty, but considering I have never done it, or watched anyone else do it, I was very happy with how they turned out. If you promise not to laugh, I'll show you a picture.
I told you they weren't pretty, but I'm celebrating anyway! There was a little left in the pan when I was done, and the children and I couldn't help but try it.
It was SO yummy!
What tips do you have for creating clear preserves? I could sure use any help you can offer!
Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
