Preserve Status: The Jam Cabinet

Friday, June 7, 2019

On the left is the jam cabinet after fall/winter gifting. Getting a little light on goodies. Still some strawberry jams left, a pint of cherries here or there, and a decent supply of autumn's apple butters and apple sauces.

I really like giving preserves as small thank you gifts. A jar of brandied cherries work great at parties, bread & apple butter for pot-lucks, other preserves for housewarmings, vanilla pear jam to complement a recent gift of homemade bread, etc. And so, after ~9 months of these type of events, the jam cabinet thins out a bit. But now getting into spring again, the supply is getting replenished (see photo on the right).

Below is the jam cabinet at November 2018 (the end of last year's preserving season), and then some photos of a recent batch of 3lbs of strawberries in vanilla syrup when they went on sale for $1.50/lb. Really fills out the cabinet!
