OH Jam!

This is a few pictures of what I have done the last 2 days!
What do you get when you take a freezer full of berries (from last year)
then add
About 125 Lbs of Sugar (yes you heard me right 125 LBS. of SUGAR!)
Add a case of pectin
You get (=)

This is not showing ALL the jam we ended up with. My table got so full I started moving them out before I was done! But this is several years worth of jam for our family! Not only did we get all this VERY YUMMY jam but I also got, 6 blisters from it boiling onto my skin, two sore feet, one stain on my carpet, 2 stained sinks (I can bleach those), a sticky floor, table, (ok the whole kitchen was sticky,) And one very tired mommy!!! But I will have yummy jam for a long time and that makes me happy and it is so worth it!

Looks so yummy I wish I still lived close by and I would come over and get myself a jar. Good work, sorry about the burns that cannot be fun.
