The hats at the Kentucky Derby this year, didn't disappoint. I loved almost all of them. These were my favorites....
The bigger the better....
This one is probably my favorite.....
So, who's in for a tea party? Because I am pretty sure my life won't be the same unless I have a party that requires me to wear/make one of these beauties.
And, this weekend, I made my very own Strawberry Freezer Jam, for the first time ever.
And, I thought two things, well three:
1. It tasted GOOOOOOOOOD.
2. HOLY SHIT there is a LOT of sugar in jam!!
3. I feel like a total Martha Stewart.
Anyone want the recipe? Well, you're in luck, here it is....
FREEZER STRAWBERRY JAM
2 c. crushed strawberries
4 c. sugar
3/4 c. water
1 box powdered pectin
Stir first 2 ingredients in bowl. Bring water and pectin to a boil and boil 1 minutes, stirring constantly. Add pectin mixture to fruit and stir 3 minutes. Pour into jars to within 1-inch from top. Put on cap and screw band tight.Let stand at room temperature for 24 hours or until set, then freeze. Makes 6 half-pints.
Word to the wise, make sure your strawberries are crushed before you start boiling your water and pectin, saves a lot of stress. I was surprised with how easy it was!
