Trying my hand at new things always brings me a lot of satisfaction. Motherhood and to-do lists and all the things that come along with raising kids and running a house can feel all-encompassing. But I don't want that. I still want to hold on to who I am, and who I am really likes getting excited about new things. This summer I have lots of canning and preserving goals, in part of that whole "less" concept I'm trying to embrace. While I doubt I'll be able to can enough tomatoes to make it through the year, I can try. Trying is at least half the fun.
If anyone has any tips on low-sugar jam recipes, please let me know. Also, if you have any good books recommendations on the subject, pass them my way.
