I have been writing up a storm to get more stories in your hands, but today I think I'm going to take a little break and make some jelly. YAY!!!
This time of year in the Seattle area is great pickin's. My kiddo's went out and brought back huge bowls ... full of blackberries, (oh yes and apples). I made some killer apple crisp with those little juicy apples. I still have so many apples I think I might just have to make some apple sauce too.
I'm not a pro at all of this canning stuff. I did quite a bit last year, but before then I just sat in the kitchen with my mom and grandmothers helping them the best I could. I know it sounds nostalgic, but I really hope that my girls can have some of those memories as well. I hope that their only memories don't consist of shows and movies we all watched together. I want them to have those good heartfelt ... I remember whens. That warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you walk into a room with a certain scent in the air.
Well the best I can do is roll up my sleeves and give it a whirl. If it doesn't turn out that perfect, at least the girls will be here getting their hands dirty with me. Hopefully the little one doesn't decide to eat all the berries before we can get them turned into jelly. Good times.
Wish me luck. I need this done so I can get back to story telling.
