Just Because....

Just because I don't post many pics...

Just because I'm so proud of today's accomplishments...

Just because I can....
Yes, that's 10 loaves of bread.  Whole wheat, Whole wheat Oatmeal, White and Raisin.  And strawberry freezer jam.  It's been a busy day. 

I'm planning on making more freezer jam tomorrow.  I only bought one box of Sure-Jell.  My grocer was having a great sale on ripe strawberries, so I bought em up.  Now I've got to do em up.  And I found out that you can mix blueberries and strawberries.  A lady from church gave me frozen blueberries from her bushes and I was trying to figure out just how to use them up, well now I know!  I'm also planning on doing up mango jam.  My kids love mangoes and it seems they are always on sale, so....  This freezer jam stuff is great!

Note: Notice the three loaves that are shorter than all the rest?  My yeast must've been bad.  I used the last of my yeast in that batch, it was the first of the day and then had to run out and buy more and those rose beautifully!  I couldn't figure it out.  So I'm hoping the SAF yeast I ordered comes tomorrow and works as well as they say it does.  The other yeast was from Sam's Club.  I guess it's no good.

Very busy day! And it looks delicious!!!

Have you already shared recipes?

Stacy said...

Nice work! And I've heard good things about SAF yeast too.
I don't think I've ever gotten a bad batch of yeast, but you do have to refrigerate it and keep an eye on the expiration date. It does actually expire and not work anymore.

Hmmm, I do freeze my yeast, but hadn't kept an eye on the expiration date. Thanks for that reminder.

I haven't shared recipes yet, no. I will have to do that. Which ones do you want? I'll have to post what I make again. It's changed somewhat.

What is freezer jam?

Kathryn said...

Freezer jam is basically some sort of crushed fruit (strawberries in my case) mixed with sugar, let sit. Mix fruit pectin (sure-jell here, not sure what they call it up there :) with boiling water. Mix that with the fruit, ladle into jars, cap, sit for 24 hours then freeze. It's great! No boiling jars, etc. The sure-jell has a low sugar type too, which I'd like to try. You use twice as much fruit and half as much sugar. So you get more fruit.

Yum! You and I would have so much fun baking together! I freeze extra berries for muffins, bread, and pancakes.
