Tyler has been dying to make strawberry jam. I promised her when I made it this year I would let her do most of the work :) Trav and I usually make it after the kids go to bed or Em and I make it while they are at school. Well tonight was the BIG night and I must say she did a great job!
She picked the perfect strawberries out of the container, cut them up
then I helped her stir in the pectin just because it is kind of hard to pour and stir, but then she stirred it every 5 min all by herself. Added the corn syrup and sugar and stirred, and stirred, and stirred... She decided there was too much stirring involved :)
She was stirring so fast she was nothing but a blur)
But in the end it turned out great, and she was SO proud of herself!! With all the left over strawberries, she wanted to tease her Piano teacher by making "spaghetti cupcakes" we got the idea out of the Hello Cupcakes cookbook. She is a funny girl and is always bring cook books home from the Library :) We kind of changed some of it to fit what we had , but they turned out cute and Jenn loved it!!
Well all that supervising has worn me out... Good night
