We are always reading in our house, so we are super excited to be a #PenguinKidsPartner and share a new book by @robbtopp, called Wink. ⁣
⁣
This hilarious and heart-wrenching story is about surviving middle-school with an unthinkable diagnosis, rare eye cancer. It’s a story of survival and finding the music, magic and laughter in life’s weirdness. ⁣
⁣
Iyla is about half way through it and can’t put it down. She loves it because it shows that no matter what your situation, you can make the best of it! I love the message it shares. I’m always telling the girls to embrace their “weird” because it’s what makes them unique. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same. ⁣
⁣
If your middle-reader is looking for a new book, we highly recommend Wink from @PenguinKids. It’s available now! ⁣

“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists?

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣

What do you miss most?⁣

This post is sponsored by Ball® Fresh Preserving Products by Newell Brands, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

About a month into Summer we were already scrambling to find things to do in my house.  Crafts are fun but messy. Going on adventures is fun but those can get expensive.  Napping is awesome but my kids don’t seem to want to get on the bandwagon with that one.  So I decided to try something brand new, something I thought I could never do, but something that the girls and I could do together… small-batch canning.  And you want to know a secret? It was actually easy and FUN!

I CAN do it!

Our home is surrounded by sweet, kind people that we love like family.  Every Christmas, my daughters and I bake cookies and deliver them to our favorite neighbors.  That got me thinking… why don’t we do something nice for them more than once a year? So, in partnering with Ball® Mason jars, we have decided to start a Summertime tradition of gift giving. Each year, starting now, we will try a few small-batch canning recipes and the one we like the best will get delivered to our favorite neighbors.  It’s our special way of saying thank you to them for caring about us.

What is Small-Batch Canning?

When you think of canning, you may think it’s something that your Grandparents and Great-Grandparents did in the good ol’ days.  But, it’s actually making a comeback!  It’s something I’ve always wanted to try, but I was afraid I wouldn’t get it right.  Small-batch canning is actually a great way to save money.  You can preserve foods to last longer and it can be conveniently stored for future meals or to be given gifts, as we are going to do.  

There are so many recipes to choose from.  My 8 year old went through the Ball® Guide to Preserving and made a list of recipes that she wanted to make this Summer. Her list had my mouth watering with recipes including Basil-Garlic Tomato Sauce, Dilled Green Tomatoes, Maple Walnut Syrup, and one of our family favorites, Green Mangoes.  After great deliberation, we decided to start with a classic, the Mixed Berry Jam.

My youngest was in charge of choosing the berries.  She chose fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries and it was the perfect combination!  My oldest helped to crush the berries.  One thing we learned in the process was not to crush them too much, or your jelly will be a little on the runny side.  Aside from that, we found it to be very easy, especially with the Ball® Canning Starter Kit which included almost everything you need to get started.

The jam was ready in 24 hours and I couldn’t keep my kids out of the jars.  They loved the sweet, fresh flavor of the jam even more so, because they helped to make it.  Teaching my kids to love cooking is so important to me.  I love that we can pass the recipes and traditions down through future generations.

I can honestly say that canning is addictive! Once you get started you’ll discover all types of fun recipes to try! We are working our way down the list right now and can’t wait to see how they all turn out! Next on our list is the Dilled Green Tomatoes (yum!).

The girls are having a hard time parting with their Mixed Berry Jam, but they are excited to see the looks on the faces of their neighbors when we hand deliver the jars this week.

    Great post! Thanks for sharing.

    As an Anti-Aging & Wellness Consultant, I always encourage my clients to eat a diet high in antioxidants and to supplement with high-potency vitamin that’s also high in antioxidants. Below is some reasons why I particularly like your recipe:

    Strawberries are an excellent source of fiber, folate and potassium. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition ranked strawberries third out of more than 1,000 antioxidant-rich foods. Strawberries also contain anthocyanins, which may help protect the nervous system and blood vessels.Studies have shown that strawberries can help protect against several types of cancer, including breast, colon and leukemia. Research has also found that strawberries help decrease inflammation and control type 2 diabetes.

    Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidant vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Research has found that blueberries may help prevent prostate cancer and protect against heart disease. Blueberry extract may help improve memory, balance and coordination—potentially promising for those with Alzheimer’s disease.

    Raspberries are a good source of fiber, phosphorus and selenium. Raspberries contain anthocyanins and another phytonutrient called quercetin, found to help slow cancer growth. Studies have shown that raspberries may be useful in preventing esophageal and liver cancer. Raspberries have also been shown to help control blood sugar in diabetics and help prevent liver damage.

    Blackberries are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins C and K and manganese. Other all the above mentioned berries, blackberries have been found to have the highest amount of antioxidants. They’re also bursting with all types of phytonutrients, which have been shown to help fight or prevent cancers like liver, colon, lung and esophageal. Blackberries also contain quercetin, an antioxidant that may help decrease the risk of heart disease.

    This is such an adorable post!!! We love making homemade strawberries too! We just finished fermenting two giant jars of sauerkraut – with Kate working hard to “massage” the shredded cabbage with salt. And we use BALL jars for everything – even for organizing their homework cart.

    I want to try making Dilled Green Tomatoes – that sounds so so delicious! Your neighbors must be so happy with their summertime gifts – what a way to teach your kiddos about giving around the year!

    That looks absolutely amazing! I used to make freezer jam a lot but I have not done that in years. I need to try this one it has all the fruits that we love in one jar.

    It is so great that you can stretch out the summer fruits with this jam you can have later in the year. It makes it more fun when you have your kids helping.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I’ve always wanted to try canning and this would be the perfect start.

    I’ve made jams before, and I used the same jars. I love that they are pretty, and functional. I save mine from year to year. I have had to replace ones I have broken but I am able to find these year after year. Great product.

    This looks so good! I remember eating homemade jams that my mom made. I always loved the flavors.

    I haven’t canned any jam this summer. I have in the past and I need to try your mixed berry jam. It looks so delicious and you just can’t beat the fresh taste of homemade jams and jellies.

    I have never made jam (well, actually we call it jelly around here) before. I use jelly almost every morning so I should try making my own one of these days.
