Jam or Jelly/Jelly or Jam

Sorry this post is a little late today. I actually didn't get to do any crafting until later this morning. And it too a while to figure out what I want to do.

There are some sisters in my church that I visit once a month. It is actually a "job" that we all have. It is a really awesome system and there have been times that I wouldn't know where I would be if it wasn't for this program. Actually, I would be going to church if it wasn't for a lady that was assigned to visit me while we lived in Alaska. I don't know what I would have done while we are out there.

We have been discussing food storage a lot lately. That is why I learned how to make freezer jam as it is called. They call it that because you can store it in the freezer for a while before you are ready to use it.

Well, a friend of mine, Michelle, offered to teach me how to make the jam that you can in a jar and it can stay safely on a shelf until you are ready to use (well at least a few years hehehe). While I was there she even showed me how to make butter. It was a fun time full of learning. I already bought some whipping cream to make the butter. I just have to do it.

Anyway, since she is moving in a few weeks (around 6 to be exact) she suggested we give some of the jars to the ladies that we visit. So, I set out to make tags for those jars. I took a message that I heard in our General Conference last month. It hit me pretty good. I did cut half of it out though, just to make room and I thought it made sense without it too.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Very cool!!! I made apple butter and that was fun. Learning to make jam and regular butter would be cool :)
