Hey Everyone,

Well today my grandma came over with a whole mess of Apricots, and we made Jam! I've never done anything like this before, so it was a fun experience. The plums are getting ripe too, so she said we'll have to make some Plum Jelly. Anyways, I took some pics. It sure was fun! We made 11.5 jars, so I think we did pretty good.




(Before adding sugar, so its pretty nasty looking,lol.)










The final product!




Some got a whole lot more fruit in them than others, but from what I tasted on the spoon, it is great!

Oh, man. That's my favorite kind of jam. My mom would win awards at the fair for hers. I really do need to get over my fear of canning alone. Thanks so much for posting your pics. Very inspiring.

That's wonderful!

It's a great, and important skill to have, and truthfully, much easier to do if you learn at the elbow of an expert, as you did. :)

That looks delicious! :)

Great Job!! Thanks for adding the pics. Apricot is my all time fav. Too bad they are about 1 dollar a lb around here. I may try to find a u-pick place.

Canning is so rewarding. :rainbow-sun
