My family likes to do some homemade gifts and food is usually a good option because then the guys are happy, too. This year, for a few people, I decided to up my game a bit and do a “Jelly of the Month Club” with 12 assorted jams and jellies. The ideal game plan was to do them throughout the year and eliminate stress in December. Well, I did half of them and then life…
