How NOT to make jam....



When you try to make strawberry jam in the microwave - remember to READ the recipe to see what size container you need, and not just rely on a rather faulty memory of what you used last time!


Do you think this will fit Lightening's Smiley Saturday criteria??! lol I'm sure someone out there is laughing :)

oh dear! I'm relieved to see I'm not the only one who can make a mess! Look at it this way, the microwave is easier to clean up than the stovetop! :)
Keep smiling

LOL. YES, it fits. It made me smile. I think it is VERY healthy to laugh at our mistakes. Some days we take ourselves too seriously!!!!

I'm sorry it didn't work out they way you were hoping but appreciate you sharing. :-)

Yikes!! Sorry, I'm definitely laughing, but only out of sympathy as that's something I would do too ;-) I hope you manage to clean it up OK, what an awful sticky mess!

Noted! That does look like good jam though - hehe.

I've finally got around to doing your meme, and tagged you for another one!

Kez, I'll admit to a small guffaw! One of the jam batches I made the week before last boiled over onto the stainless steel cooktop.....fortunately, it cleaned off fairly easily. Mind you, each time the gas was lit for about a week, you got a hit of toffee flavoured air - not so bad really!
