Coming Soon...

Remember these??

Hopeful jam entries for the County fair

Winners!

When I make my jams and jellies, then share with family and friends, I always get lots of compliments between licking fingers and lips. I get told often that I should sell some, but how and where was the question. I approached several farm markets and stands to inquire about selling my jams, but they either already have jams for sale, or give me vague answers about getting a business license and getting my kitchen inspected by the 'powers-that-be'.

Then I checked Etsy and I realized I had the answer the entire time! Etsy allows me to sell my homemade jams! Eureka!! So I have been hard at work these past couple of days, making and canning fresh jams and jellies to put up for sale in my Etsy shop. I always have too many for us to eat up, but canning has become my addiction. I am always looking at a fruit and wondering, "Can I make a jam out of that?" We are a jam-loving family and we go through several jars a week, and that alone tells me how good my jams are.

So-- As soon as I get some pictures, I will be selling some of my hand-canned jams and jellies, including my Prize-Winning Blue Ribbon Rhuberry jam! (My second-place winner, Crazyberry will be for sale as well!)

Now I'm off to buy more jars!! :o)

Well done. What a great idea to sell some of your jams. I love home made preserves of any kind and always buy a pot at local sales. I'm a bit too far away to buy yours sadly but good luck with your etsy sales. Bx
