July 4th and Homemade Jam

I had a great 4th of July holiday. It included helping mom pull weeds in the garden and picking apricots. Then we made apricot-pineapple freezer jam. Yummy!

Making freezer jam is very easy. But in general, with my mom’s kitchen aid, it’s so much easier than when I was a kid and we had to crank that old Victoria strainer by hand.

We added the sugar to the apricot/pineapple mixture and then added the pectin.

Then we put it into containers to set up.

Now it’s in the freezer ready to be taken out and eaten.  I think I need to make some bread. There are not many things better than fresh, hot homemade bread with homemade jam. J
