Jam Session

5 June, 2011: Sunday

Recently I have been making quite a bit of jam. I really enjoy the process of making jam and the final product (yum!). I have started creating my own original recipes and have wanted to share them with friends. Today I had some of my great friends over for a “jam session”! I served a bunch of a goodies that Stephen and I made to accompany the jam.
