Food in Jars.
The cooking was a snap. I just stirred it occasionally while it simmered down to about one third of the original volume. It took about two hours, but I think I could have simmered hotter and faster. Then into jars, twenty minutes in the water bath and voila!
So, all's well now at our house. Mitchell is home from his little overnight at the hospital and feeling a little punk. About three weeks and he should be back to normal. Guess he will be my project for the next couple of days and I'll worry about shopping next week.
But we do have jam.
