My mother recently bemoaned our seemingly chronic shortage of available food containers. Being the one with the least sparse knowledge of the wilderness that is our freezer box, I suggested that we might just not be eating whatever we're storing, and decided to take a look.
Basically, the culprit is my mothers penchant for jam making, and the fact that we've never actually finished an entire batch of jam. We have about 5 dl to a litres worth (2 to 4 cups) from each year, starting from 2011's exquisite, but now toddler-aged strawberry jam and ending at 2015's lingonberry jam, as well as some of my sister's sporadic chutney-making. Not only that, but the reason she was worried in the first place was because she just finished making a new, citrus-flavoured batch.
