    HI Brenda, I love your college care package series. I have a golfer as well and will use some of your ideas. What have you done around Valentines day?

      Hi Susie (I’m Dorothy by the way). Thank you, and I’m glad you found some ideas. I’m putting together a Valentines post this week, so it should be up soon.

    I’m just getting into canning, and I did my first batch of jam today. I forgot one of the steps–removing air bubbles. Is my jam ruined? Is it going to make someone sick??? How serious is my mistake?

      Hi Brenda (sorry so long to get back to you!). Don’t worry too much about the air bubbles as far as safety goes. It usually is just cosmetic. If your rim was clean and you water-bathed your jam for 10 minutes getting a good seal on it, you are fine. Jam on, and have fun.
