Today I mastered the quadruple batch. That is to say that I successfully made 32 jars of jam in one pot, then processed the jars in two baths. "Success" means that the jam jelled properly, the lids sealed as they should, and it tasted so yummy that I talked to myself at length about how good it was while scooping spoonful after spoonful from the bottom of the leftover jar straight into my mouth. What are you doing making jam in November, you ask? Your raspberries don't live through the late fall frost? Neither do mine. These are local frozen berries, of course. Enough to make a bunch of jars for holiday gifts and this weekend's upcoming holiday fair at the Dayton School. Yep, I'm actually participating in a local fair. Oooo-eeee! I'll let you know how it goes.
