Let's Make Jelly Mom......

One of the great thing about cooking is its contagiousness. I had made some apple jelly back in January and when I came home with 2 pints of fresh strawberries Luke, my 4 year-old runs up to me and says, "I have an idea mom....let's make jelly".  We just cut up the fruit and 1.5 cups sugar, placed both in a big pot under low-medium heat for an hour and I kerpt stirring. Tomorrow we will make pancakes for breakfast and have some of our fresh, syrupy strawberry jelly preserved on top...YUMMY!

  2. Your kids are adorable!

    I think cooking is one of the best ways to bring a family closer together. Not only is everyone learning but everyone is helping each other out, and of course, the result is the best part!

    Now you've got me craving pancakes w/ jelly =)
