Apricot and strawberry jam

I bought a couple quarts of beautiful, local strawberries on my way to the shore the other day.  Earlier in the week I bought a few pounds of apricots at Produce Junction.

Time to make jam!

I'm not going to go into process details here.  Your best bet is to follow the same directions I did, which come from the National Center for Home Food Preservation at the University of Georgia.  It is a great resource and offers recipes for a wide range of food products -- jams, jellies, pickles, and so on.  The link to NCHFP is to the right, in my list of links.

It's still too hot to test.  Can't wait!
