Summer Day 5: Delicious Jam and Glorious Toes

I woke up this morning, the fog of the no-sugar headache lifted.  I had completely forgotten about the Strawberry & Black Currant Jam that I’d started so that was the first order of the day.  I strained the juice from the strawberries, added 3/4 cup of Black Currant juice and brought the mixture to 220 degrees.  Then I added back the strained strawberries, brought that to a boil and simmered the jam for 5 minutes.  It made enough for 3 small jars so I processed them in steam for 20 minutes.

The results smell wonderful and look beautiful.  Now what to do with the rest of the black currant juice?……..The next item on todays agenda is Lunch with my pal S.E. followed by a summer pedicure.  Time to bring those winter toes up to speed…….

……Pedicures were fantastic – hot rocks, warm wax, foot massage and pretty flowers.  What a fun afternoon.
