Jam and More Jam
Well Ive been at it again. Jam making. I really enjoy making Jams and Jellies and all sorts of canning stuff. Its a good thing I have lots of friends who like eating it too, cause otherwise there's no way I would be able to eat all I make.
So this got me thinking, we have a craft sale in Cessford in November sometime and maybe I should sell some of my jams there. I have done this before and its went over okay, not super well, but I have only had them there once and it was kinda spur of the moment. With some time to plan, maybe it will be a little better.
So I am planning now. I thought if I want them to sell, maybe to be given as gifts, I should make some pretty labels. I looked at what I could make on the computer and then thought since I scrapbook, why not make scrapbooking type labels. So this is what I've come up with so far.
And this is what they look like on the jars. I still have many more to make and put on, but just thinking so far.
I am thinking I will be taking rhubarb raspberry jam, raspberry jelly, nanking jelly, crab apple jelly, apple jelly, peach jam and applesauce. I am thinking of charging $3 for small jars, or $5 for big jars and all applesauce at $4. Should be fun, I guess I better get on making more labels though and ordering a table.
