Links: Meyer Lemon Jam, Kerr Jars, and a Winner

spouted drink jars

I spent the weekend up in Massachusetts at the wedding of a very old friend. It was a remarkable gathering in so many ways. It was held at a retreat center, so the bulk of the wedding guests were together from Friday night straight through until this morning. Everyone joyfully lent a hand in the hours before the ceremony, to ensure it would go without a hitch. And most unusually, there were 14 members of the clergy in attendance (both the bride and groom are Unitarian Universalist ministers).

After all that celebrating (as well as the driving to and fro), I’m more than a little weary, so I’m going to keep the links brief this week. Here’s a handful of highlights.

Mrs. Wages Pickle Mixes mrs. wages winner

The winner of the Mrs. Wages pickle basket is Christine W. who said, “My favorite thing at the start of canning season is strawberry jam! It puts the store-bought stuff to shame!” Christine, you are too right!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a giveaway that’s going to knock your socks off, so check back then!

    Love the California in a Jar post – thanks for sharing! That post recommends not to can the conserve. Is that for taste or is it actually unsafe to can? Any recommendations?

    Oh wow! I didn’t realize Albertina Kerr was related to Kerr jars! Funny how things seem so obvious in hindsight. Well, I’ll have to look into that since I am from Portland too!!
