Sorry I haven't been on lately. After completing all the rhubarb for the season, we went on vacation for 2 weeks to Washington (to read up on that go to my Airstream blog.) Here in WI it is strawberry season, and we've learned if you don't get out and pick right away, you miss the season altogether and have to pay higher prices than usual in the stores.
We went picking for an hour one day, and brought back 23 pounds for our jam. I haven't made jam for two years because we had made so much two years ago that we didn't need anymore. I do realize that you should only keep home-canned items for one year, but hey, who can bear to waste all that hard work and money? I watch it carefully for any signs of not looking good, and have had very good luck with things staying good for longer than a year.
