I am not a domestic diva in any way, shape or form. I’d like to be more domestic–and I’ve had small successes in the kitchen–but I still feel like I have a long, long, long way to go.
Luckily, there are people in this world who help out the domestic diva flunkies (like me) and others who just want to learn. These people are patient and kind while helping out people like me. I’m lucky enough to have an awesome County Extension program–right at my little, Holly Homemaker-wannabe fingertips.
I recently participated in a workshop–taught by some of our Extension staff–that helped show a group of young gals how to make jellies and jams. It was a hands-on workshop and I left with some products that I actually had a hand in making–that people can actually eat and enjoy.
Here’s the proof…
No food poisoning took place.
No fingers were accidentally severed.
No explosions happened in the kitchen.
And, our Extension Specialist is willing to hold another canning session for us.
She likes us! She really, really likes us!
Plus, I left the workshop feeling like I could make jams and jellies in my own kitchen.
Of course, have I attempted to make any at home since the workshop??
But that’s just it–I think I could do it by myself.
God bless our County Extension staff for they know not what they have done.
Watch out people, I have assorted varieties of pectin and I now know how to use it!
