I had this goal of trying out lots of new things while Mark and I are apart, in order to keep me busy and to just have more experiences in general before Lil Z is born. Unfortunately, those first 14 weeks of pregnancy knocked me on my rear and a month later I’m just starting to get back into the swing of things. So, when Beth sent out an email to all the ladies at church asking if we were interested in canning/making jam, I knew I had to say yes.

I bought 18 pounds of peaches. Thankfully, Beth was willing to pick up everyone’s peach order for us. Then this afternoon, she taught me how to make jam! It was not as hard as I thought it was going to be, though definitely messy. I had a really fun time getting to know her better and the jam smelled soooo good! Instant Christmas presents!

If anyone else wants to learn to make jam I’d be happy to show you and to make more! Or, we could give jelly a try 🙂
