Adventures in Jam Making

Yesterday mom and I had a jam session, raspberry jam that is. My mom is the "jam master" if you will, she makes jam every year; strawberry, marionberry, blackberry, you name it! It's kinda her thing. This jam session was extra special because jars of this raspberry jam will be the favors at our wedding - pretty sweet, huh? Here are a few pictures from our jam session.
In a funny way, making jam reminded me of that episode of FRIENDS where Monica makes jam as the "jam plan to get over my man," and Joey totally devours it all, and has jam all over his face...remember that one? Love it!

Thanks Mom, plus I knocked another thing off my summer to-do list. Yes!

How fun! I think homemade favors are extra special. I'm pretty sure not a day goes by where I can't find a friends quote to squeeze in somewhere!

How fun! I love the idea of homemade jam as favors. So sweet (haha, bad pun).

PS - I made the lemon goat cheese zucchini pizza for family dinner last night and it was a hit!

An abundance of berries is one of the reasons I would love living in the Pacific Northwest. This looks incredible!
