What I Learned from Canning 50 Pints of Jam

We don't eat jam.

About a year ago my bff Joy (who moved away and I miss terribly!) and I canned tons of jam.  We did strawberry and raspberry for the shelf and some for the freezer too.  We were so excited to be stocked up with jam for our food storage.  Little did I know I rarely ever use jam.  Nor does Devin.

So, now a year later, how many pints of jam do I have left?  47.

But if you were starving I bet you would eat it! lol Yeah I did tons of Raspberry Freezer Jam back in September and we ate half of it in like 2 months and the jar we're on right now has been in the fridge for 3 months now! I guess we slowed down quite a bit. food storage is so hard

Haha, I did the same thing! I got a new visiting teacher and she has a huge garden and orchard and she would bring me a huge basket of fruits and veggies every couple of weeks so I figured jam would be the perfect thing to keep the fruit for longer... I made like 4 or 5 different kinds and gave out tons and I still have tons left! I don't think we have even made it through a whole jar!

My husband loves jam, but it's pointless for me to make it because he only likes store bought, which I find to be incredibly wasteful since it's so cheap to make jam when you can get the fruit cheap. It's frustrating.
