Valley Bounty: Jam

JAM

Eating seasonally year round is a great balance of celebration and preparation. Savor what’s in season, knowing that soon we’ll move from asparagus to strawberries and on to the delights of full summer. Preserve the essence of an ingredient in a jar, though, and you can enjoy it next winter. Learn some preservation skills yourself before the summers’ berries and other fruit come into season or buy some premade local jams and jellies. Preservation resources and sources are at buylocalfood.org.
