Join us as our homestead kids learn how to make jam.
I didn’t grow up canning it was a craft that both inspired and scared me to pieces. In fact, the entire process was somewhat of a mystery to me. If we go to the store and buy jam off the shelf it’s sealed – bam, done! No thought… no appreciation for the entire process.
The combination of being intrigued by the process, my love for learning, and my ever growing desire to be more self reliant – I knew the time had come; I had to learn how to can. If we were growing our own food it only made sense that I would naturally want to preserve it for the weeks, months, and year to come.
However, more importantly than that I knew it was a skill I wanted to pass onto our children. As it is not only my desire to teach them ‘how to’ can but, to give them the tools to not only survive but, thrive.
May they never take for granted the simple process of buying food from the grocery store but, always have a natural curiosity and appreciation for how it all works.
