STRAWBERRY JAM -- YUM YUM!!

Who says that straight men can't be domesticated?? The first year of marriage to Tommy I saw one of the most odd things I had ever seen. On a trip to Las Vegas to visit Tommy's family in April, I saw Tommy's dad making strawberry jam. Yeah, a man making jam! Well, to make a long story short, making strawberry jam is a tradition every April in Tommy's family. So, of course we just had to join in and make our own. That's what we did, and yes I said We --Tommy made as much as I did, and he's actually pretty good at it.

Last year was our first run at it and it turned out pretty good. However, we didn't make a whole lot because we were to scared that it might not turn out. This year we went crazy! We made a ton of strawberry jam and we make it good! Our freezer is full and we're already looking forward to next year. So, if you want to taste some of the best homemade jam this side of the Mississippi River, give us a call!!

I need a lesson! My grandma has tried to teach me on several occasions, but I guess I'm not patient enough for the work--the outcome is great, though!
