Weekend Jam Making

Hello There!!

As you can see by the title, my Mom and I did a little jam making over the weekend.  We made plum jam and blueberry jam since we had some pretty baskets of the fruits just hanging around the kitchen and we thought it was the best way to put them to good use.  I thought I'd share a few pictures of the process with you all.

Little red plums.  Isn't the colour of these magnificent?? 

Plump wild blueberries.

A jar of yummy blueberry jam to enjoy during the cold winter months.

It was all a lot of fun and now we're planning on making some different kinds of jams and chili sauces later this week.

Have a great day everyone!!

Much Love, xx


  1. What a cool way to spend the weekend! Did you grow the fruit yourselves or went fruit picking recently?

  2. No, we bought them from local pickers and growers :)
