Comments: Comfort and Canning

I hope you saved the "foam" left over from skimming the jam. It makes the best breakfast jam.

Back when I helped my Mom make grape jam (from the concord grapes off my grandfather's farm fence row, about 8 quarts of juice after mashing, cooking, and straining through cheese cloth), we used to get nearly a pint of skimmed "foam" left over after canning the jam. That wasn't pressure cooker canned jam, but cooked jam that we later sealed with paraffin.

Canning is the ultimate Tom Sawyer Painting The Fence opportunity. We used to rope in the neighbor kids to help peel fruit during the canning season.
