Jam Session

One of my most favorite things about summer is making jelly.  It reminds me of when I first met Michael and his family, because they had a garden and always put up vegetables and jelly.  It is some of my favorite memories.
So obviously, I was super excited when my sweet friend Susan called yesterday to say she had figs and wanted me to help her make some.

It is hard, hot work stirring constantly for seven minutes.

Somebody is gonna be a mama for the first time in a few months.
Can't wait to meet him!

Of course, you can't make jelly without some buttermilk biscuits to do a taste test with.  
YUM!!!
