Get ready for Canning Season

June is the month I start with Strawberry Jam.
In May I check my jars for cracks and lids for rust.
Then stock up with certo and sugar. Get my recipes
out and list all the ingredients I will need for my preserves.
So much easier to go to the pantry and all the spices you need
are there waiting to make some delicious preserve. I always
try a few new recipes every year. Get cracking out there.

Good tip from a friend for summer

To keep flies away place a plastic bag half filled with water with four pennies inside bag. Place near windows or your patio table. the flies will just leave. Thanks Rosemarie.
