"And I'll make [Anne] enough blue plum preserve to stock her jam closet for a year."
--Marilla speaking of Anne's engagement to Gilbert Blythe in Anne's House of Dreams.
Well, we don't have any blue plum preserves. Instead, we have a year's supply (if I hoard it) of strawberry preserves made from the lovely, red strawberries we picked this weekend. There are very few things in this world better than freezer jam, in my humble opinion. And don't you just adore the idea of a jam closet? Of course, you can't store freezer jam in a jam closet, but I would consider switching if I had a jam closet to stock.
I am tempted to go on a jam canning binge if only to enjoy the aesthetics of the pretty jeweled jars stacked right next to each other. *Swoon* Yes, I get swoony thinking about a well stocked freezer and pantry.
