This is another handout for my Beehives.
This lesson was on Righteous Traditions.
The lesson reminded me of one of my favorite
childhood memories - making Jam.
My mom LOVED fresh berries!
She tried to grow our own,
but we only ever ended up with a handful.
Still she wanted to preserve the tastes of summer.
We would travel to the fruit stands and buy
OH SO EXPENSIVE flats of fresh fruit.
At home we would wash and prepare
the sweet, red fruit. (Raspberries too!)
This week I took Mikensee out
and we bought all the supplies.
Strawberries were only $1/lb!!!
We showed up at my Mom's and
announced our plans. My 18
year old sister (18 tomorrow!)
had never made fresh jam.
We had a great day and while
preserving a taste of summer
we preserved a righteous family tradition!
