A Taste of Home

September 17, 2021

Make your own jam and you can make the planet a little happier as well as make a sweet memory. In this Treehugger article, Katherine Martinko shares why she makes jam year after year.

An important benefit is that when you make your own jam, you get to choose the source of your main ingredient.  If the fruit isn’t from your garden, you can choose to buy from a local farmer’s market or simply choose a fruit that’s in-season to reduce the impact of produce transportation.  The author also points out the benefits of re-using the glass jars year to year.  These options are all kinder to the health of the planet. 

Give it try and you may find even more benefits like providing a sweet taste of summer through the winter.
