I really enjoy making jam, preparing the fruits and combining flavors and tasting it as it simmers and I feel proud when my family barrels through it. Honestly the part I dread the most has to be the most important part the sanitizing of the jars and the processing of jam. But of course knowing it has a shelf life and one morning months later and we are having waffles or french toast and I can pop one of the little guys open and have for example that yummy Pear and Vanilla Bean or Blueberry Jam warmed up and drizzled on a fresh warm waffle all I can say is yum.......

Hi, Cindy!

I am so impressed with your jam-making. My grandmother used to make fig preserves and crabapple jelly, and I well remember the sterilization process. It seemed endless, but oh, when the jelly and preserves were ready, it was worth it. I think this is wonderful that you love to make jams, and you have made such a variety. You just can't beat homemade.

These all sound delicious! My least favorite part is watching the jars dwindle down as we eat them. I'm always afraid we'll run out and then I start rationing. I should stop worrying; we haven't run out yet despite the sheer volume of jams my two kids eat.
