County Fair and Jam

Today I entered my plum jam and bread & butter pickles in the local county fair. I did this mostly because the bee guild that I belong too needs the parking passes, but it is also fun to enter these local events. In 2005, I entered jam in the state fair, and received a second place award (no, that is not 2nd place, as in 1st and 2nd, all jams that are between 80-89 points receive a 2nd place ribbon). Not bad for my first time. However, not sure I have done much better this time!

On Monday, I will be making more jam, probably peach, and will post the recipe and photos. Making jam and canning is time consuming, but it is not rocket science, and I look forward to sharing more information about how anyone can do this project.


  1. I’m so jealous of your canning abilities. I want to learn but no one around here does that.

    So I got some books from the library and some good advice. I just need to get some jars and supplies.

    Then I will imagine that I am you for a day 🙂

    Queen, you can come back and check out the posts I wrote about actually making jam – it is not hard, but does require a little attention to detail. Then you can be me for a day 🙂

    BTW, what is your favorite kitchen gadget?
