Lets start with some adorable picture of Karen:
We have done this a couple of times before, but she is finally game when we ask.
So it is Saturday in Provo. Spring is here, the birds a chirping so Krysta and I have a million things we have to do! There was an amazing sale on Strawberries so we each bought 8 pounds and decided to make freezer jam!
Did you know: It takes a really long time to clean and cute 16 pounds of Strawberries?
Ahhh, so good!
My fingers were pruned when we finally finished.
I had red stains down my hands and arms too!
We mashed the strawberries in the food processor, mixed in pectin and lemon juice,
then after a half hour of periodic stirring, got ready to pour in the sugar.
That’s right…nine cups of sugar.
I brake it down in this video.
In the end we had a counter full of jars of delicious jam.
I looks kind of like spaghetti sauce, but it is much more pink in real life.
We went our separate ways for a few hours that afternoon. Karl and I went suit shopping, Krysta got her eyebrows and eye lashes burnt off:
We went ahead and got the ground ready for our garden!
Yes, this is us holding up a big bag of poo.
We went on to start making dresses that night, and going to sleep DEAD tired. I love Sundays. A day to finally rest!
