Today it's an Anything But a Card Day at The Bug Blog!
Before we had Olivia, summer freezer jam was something that was made in our house like clockwork. My mom would spend the weekend, we'd have more fruit then we ever thought we'd be able to peel, squish & can. But, every summer we'd do it! We'd have a gorgeous array of fruit freezer jams that would last us the year. A yummy addition to a housewarming gift, host gift, or just Sunday English Muffins or Scones!
Well, now that Olivia is almost three, this summer SHE helped with the freezer jam! :D She loved it! She likes to do her Kids Size cooking, so this was RIGHT UP HER ALLEY!
We made 24+ jars of jam in Yellow Peach & Raspberry Peach. Of course, we could have made more, but the attention span of an almost three year old kept us to around 2 dozen jars this year.
Anyway, I yammer on because my ABC project today is little labels for our Freezer Jam Jars. :) The back of the label has the date it was made, the flavor, storing instructions and made with love signed by Olivia. :)
