Patty O. taught us how to make strawberry jam, both canned and freezer jams. We tasted jams made with sugar, made with low sugar, and made with “splenda.” Some of us tried our hands at stirring, cooking, and filling jars.
We organized a “Storehouse Saturday” for the ward. About 8 members went to the storehouse together where they purchased and canned foods they wanted to add to their food storage.
At the last meeting in June we learned about canning meat and chicken from Brian S. It was great to have a man teach us about something that some folks think of as “women’s” work.
Did you participate in any of these activities? Did you learn something that you put to use in your own food storage at home? Were they a worthwhile use of your time?
