Quite a bit was accomplished this weekend. I didn't plan it that way. One thing just led to another and bam! Things got done.
First, was the last of my elk meat. Thirteen pounds of meat to season and dehydrate. While I was in the kitchen, I might as well make some caramel apple jam. Since I had everything out to make jam I might as well make jam out of the wild strawberries I gathered this summer. I only had a scant quart of strawberries, but thanks to Ball real fruit pectin I found a recipe that fit my needs. Voila....
Wait! Are those cookies in the picture? One of my other goals was to send some cookies to my nephew and cousin to celebrate their first year of college. I will put together a care package for them tomorrow.
I'm super excited to see how it turns out. My husband finished cleaning my elk skull for a European mount. He did a great job.
