Yesterday it was my turn to plan date day.
So. . .
I treated him to breakfast .. .
and then told him where to drive ..
and we picked a few pails of berries. . . .
. .and then I let him go to the shop.
I washed them and laid them out to dry on paper towels.
I sliced up enough for six bags . .
and then I pulled out the packet of Refrigerator Jam mix that my friend Hilda told me about.
It suggests 4 cups of finely chopped fruit.
I used a potato masher and mashed about 4 1/2 cups because we like our jam soft.
Then I added the 1 1/2 cups of white sugar and let it sit 15 mintues.
Then . .I slowly stirred in the packet mix and stirred for a few minutes. .
and voila. .
we have jam.
I've never been a big fan of freezer jam.
This jam however is a winner.
I bet you would never know it is freezer jam.
Since I expect you'll ask where I bought my packet. .
it was the same place that Hilda told me she bought hers. .
at the super store.
All for now...
