jam hands

When living in Oregon, it becomes crucial to put fresh produce to good use as often as possible. This is an unwritten law understood by all inhabitants. Happily, living here has instilled in me an obsessive need to take the state's bounty and make it into things that are by definition "yummy".

And so, I made my first attempt at jam! I used fresh blueberries, lemon juice, sugar and voila! Jam! 

I can highly recommend this recipe for simple jams (I'm anxious to try a version of it with the Oregon blackberries once they ripen!) especially when paired with Trader Joe's Almond Butter on whole wheat toast!
