The rain has begun falling here on this Memorial Day Weekend. Typical. I think it has rained every (almost) Memorial Day of my life and 16 years ago I choose to get married on Memorial Day Weekend- an outdoor wedding in New Jersey. What was I thinking? But low and behold we had a gorgeous and perfect day. A humid free, 78 degree, and sunny day. The NJ State Bird- the mosquito even cooperated and stayed away.
This Memorial Day Weekend I decided to make Strawberry Freezer Jam for Himself since it is one of his favorites. I made a huge batch, enough to share with friends as well. I simply followed the recipe on the Ball Fruit Pectin packet.
The color was bright and radiant! Ball also sells small 8 ounce plastic containers with screw on tops especially made for freezer jam. I filled ten for friends and two more huge containers for us. Each container was delivered to some neighbors with American Flags to jazz up the neighborhood for Memorial Day. This is an easy and delicious little task that is definitely tops in the instant gratification category.
Enjoy your Monday off and this video of Andrea Bocelli singing a lullaby to Elmo.
