Ratatouille: Chef's Toque


Tonight was our (first) jam-making session of the summer. Carrying on the family tradition, both ours and evidently my grandparents'... I'm making up labels and I'm sorely tempted to list an expiration date now! :)

First batch was blueberry (8 jars) and second batch was strawberry (9 jars), both fortified with a little lemon and pinot noir. We have some peaches and raspberries for another batch sometime in the next couple days, too.

Smells and tastes good but it's always hard to tell exactly what the flavor and texture of the finished product will be.
