all was well until.......

Canning is so rewarding for me........and so frustrating! Jam making went well this afternoon.
But what was supposed to look like this in every jar...
Turned to this in one jar....

An entire jar of jam lost into the water bath. Poohey. That's enough to ruin a girl's day! At least the stew for dinner tonight is going o.k.

What a bummer! Just recently, Cody was making his own smoothie and he wanted to put just a little of my Mom's homemade jam in it. He opened up the jar which she just gave us and as he tried getting a little out, the whole entire jar fell in. That was one incredibly sweet smoothie. We felt so bad to use her jam up all in one bang. Oh well... accidents do happen.

Oh and I love your new look here on the blog!

Hmmmm, I KNOW how this feels. I was making jam once and had the bottom of the jar break off and also lost all of the jam from that jar. What a mess! to clean up. Hope your supper turned out okay ;)

That's enough to elicit a deep sigh, maybe even a tear or two!

Oooohhh how frustrating!! I stick to making freezer jam, but it can be messy too. My husband became diabetic so I don't make it much any more...he can't seem to stay out of it.
Love what you have done with your blog. Gotta go check and stir my granola
Have a great day

I keep meaning to call you and then something always comes up. I haven't forgot about you though. Today has been the first day of feeling sick. Ugh!!

Looks yummy! Too bad about the one jar. I haven't made jam or jelly in ages....that's retirement for you!
