First up was Mayhaw Jelly: This weekend we put up 48 1/2 pint jars of Mayhaw Jelly which is one of our favorites!
This is the shelf in my sunroom where the jelly did its final cooling before being moved to the overflow pantry area in the laundry room.
Second up was Strawberry Jam: This weekend resulted in 72 1/2 pint jars of Strawberry Jam which is BY FAR my children's favorite. We usually go through 1 or 2 jars a week at our house.
And you simply CAN NOT spend a day of cooking during Mardi Gras season without eating King Cake while you cook! lol
I even had my hubby in the kitchen cooking. He was stirring the jelly here, but see that pot in the back? That was his delicious vegetable beef soup simmering to perfection!
The BEST part about cold weather is hot food!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did!
