I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
With a sense of self relief AND exhaustion I have accomplished something I have always wanted to attempt. And with that I have TONS of plum jam and freshly canned peaches. I felt so accomplished when I finished and felt like my Mormon Pioneer Ancestors (and remember my Grandma doing it all the time too). With that being said, as far as the jam (which is delicious, if I may say so myself) I think that is a check off the list (not something I would probably do again). Biggest complaint...HEAT...tons of pots boiling water in the the dead heat of summer...YUCK! The peaches on the other hand were pretty easy and they are worth the effort for the yummy taste of fresh peaches all year. So I apologize in advance for the bragging and self celebration (especially to all those who do this regularly and its easy) I am not the "pure" homemaker type...so I am proud of myself, Ned was proud too and took all these pictures of me...ha ha ha...
And if you want a jar of plum jam stop by and we still have plenty (after giving them to all our co-workers, neighbors, church friends, family, etc.).
