There's been a bumper crop of Blackcurrants and Redcurrants in my garden this year and I've spent a couple of days storing them away in the freezer and making Blackcurrant Jam - 10 jars of it! Albeit of different sizes: some large, some small. I dressed up a tiny jar for my Mum as she's not a big jam eater but will want to sample it. I used a coffee filter paper (I saw the idea on Nichole Heady's blog some time ago) and as I didn't have a suitable stamp, improvised with a Babana Frog background stamp of scribbled circles and added tops and bottoms with a purple pen to turn them into currants.
This just reminds me of one of my favourite films, Pollyanna - the one starring Hayley Mills. The ladies of the town dressed up much larger jars of calf's-foot jelly (yuk!) in tissue paper like this to give to the sick - who I seem to remember were not very grateful! They should have given them jam instead..... If you haven't seen this film buy a DVD - you're in for a nostalgic treat!
