The Jr High School “Harvest Homesteaders” canathon finished up today.
This time around we made up a batch of peach jam and spiced apple sauce.
Peeling and cutting the apples. I told the girls they should get extra credit for peeling and chopping the apples with an eco-plastic knives!
One piece for the pot, one piece for me, one for the pot….
Mashing the peaches then putting the peach jam into sterilized jars.
Out come the peach jam from their water bath. Next round is the apple sauce.
Yesterday’s batch of strawberry jam gets some trimmings which read “Happy Holidays! Homemade from Westridge School”
Apple sauce and peach jam. They jars will get nifty trimmings tomorrow and then off the jars go to a local food bank
The girls proudly show off their work.
Group shot with the girls and their teacher.
All in all a good time and a good day’s work. The local food bank is going to be surprised and what a joy it will be for these girls to give such a homemade blessing.
