Fruit Of Our Labor

I want to show you one simple photo of how I spent my day.


jelly


See that bottom shelf.

  The enamel pan holds the last of the apple butter that I made in the fall.

The other jars are filled with delicious strawberry jam that I made today. 

What a fruitful day I had.

I SO have plans to pick some strawberries when they come into season here in June and I'll make me some jam of my own. Yummers.....
I love apple butter and haven't had it for years. Lucky you to still have some. :-)

Is there anything more satisfying than seeing those jars on your shelf? My hubby absolutely loves apple butter but I haven't made any in years. We won't have any strawberries for at least another 2 months here! So, I will just drool over your jars of jam! xo Diana

Mmmm...looks like you're all set with lots of yummy goodness. When I was growing up my mom would do lots of canning, mostly vegetables though.
