Can it

Today my step-daughter and I made Saskatoon Berry jam from the berries that I had gathered last week.

Honestly, the smell in the house, as we stirred our berry/sugar/secret ingredient mixture, was divine.

Our first small batch of canning is done for the year. The list of to-do’s has been created, including some of our favorites from previous years and we have a list of possible and hopeful first attempts.

Are we ever looking forward to sinking our teeth into this delicious treat.

I love taking the time to teach my kids (bio, step or otherwise) about life, love and adventure, and imparting into them my adoration for nature and mindfulness.
