strawberry and raspberry jam

21 Jul

When we do fun, nourishing things with little ones we love, they create fun, nourishing associations with us. This Mama and her son do a lot of cooking together at home. Coming together with other kids and families supports her efforts at home, and is so much fun. These pictures are from our berry jammin’ class this week.

First, we mashed the berries.

 

 

 

 

Then we brought the berry mash to a boil and added the sugar and the pectin and the calcium water. The calcium helps to activate the pectin.

 

 

Then we poured our jam into our jars,

 

 

 

 

and each made our own labels.
