At Chez Carlson, the children saw their father and their meme did most of the cooking.
However, Mom also got into food made of love - typically by canning and baking. For Jeremie and Maria's wedding, she made the wedding favors - over 200 four ounce jars of jam. Peach, raspberry, blueberry, rhubarb strawberry and I think a couple of mixes. Most of the fruit came from our yard, but I will concede that perhaps the peaches came from out of state.....Wisconsin is not a peach growing state.
While she is planning on a weekend of making jam and canning and inviting the children, here is a video on how to make jam and can it, although as the video shows, you don't have to can in order to make it. It is simple and delicious.
