Awesome T~ My mom and I make Jam every November. I harvest my strawberry's and melons and freeze them and my mom gets her raspberry's and blueberry's and we boil them in different mixtures, add the sugar (and we added some vinegar?) to taste, and can them for ourselves and for Christmas presents! We still have neighbors who almost demand our home made jam at Christmas because they use it for their Christmas party's!
It's a great gift and with cheap jars and cute ribbon, they are wonderful!
