Every now and again I get the urge to ditch the technology and do something rustic and old-fashioned. In an attempt to be my best Laura Ingalls-Wilder (of Little House of the Prairie fame), I decided to try my hand at making jam. Strawberry jam to be more specific. Making jam just seemed like a nice and simple way to pass the time in a way that would distract me enough that I wouldn’t feel compelled to scroll through Instagram every four minutes.
Let me tell you it worked. A fun fact about making jam, is that it’s deceptively simple, as long as you keep your stove on a low heat, you’ll be in business. And now that I’ve made the jam, I’ll be in the business of baking plenty of scones and pastries to accompany it.
