Our strawberries grow in groups of two or three, and are very tiny. So I’ve been saving each one in a bag in the freezer, in the hopes that I can eventually make the smallest, but sweetest, batch of jam.
These cookies are one of my very favorites. Many of my favorite things revolve around jam. Baby B was a great helper right up until the second batch needed rolling out. He didn’t believe me that I just needed a few more minutes, before the dough got all warm. But somehow all the cookies got made, and eaten!
These poor peaches were orphans. Can you believe that at one point in their sweet lives, they weren’t wanted? My little heart breaks. Thankfully, they were taken in by the most wonderful family, and with a little help, they went on to become amazing things. The juiciest peaches mixed with an inordinate amount of sugar, and became jam. The jam became part of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and will continue to sweeten our lives even after the seasons change.
