Making 30 homemade jars of Michigan strawberry jam with handmade labels is a time commitment, above all. But preserving is something that I love to do. So it's with this love that I set aside the time to save the season's best for the months to come.
For a mom with four kids, the time it takes to preserve is a larger sacrifice than any reasonable dollar amount spent on a gift card. But for the amazing men and women who teach, guide, mold, and love my children during the school day, no sacrifice is too big, even of my most valuable commodity.
