I decided to try and make jam for the first time ever. What equipment did I need? Where do I find it in the Hamptons? Herrick Hardware in Southampton had the jam jars and food mill that I needed. I googled up a recipe and went to work. Messy job, but I did it! Right now eight hot jars of beach plum byproduct are cooling on my counter top. The substance inside still looks runny and hardly like a jam. I hope by tomorrow it looks more promising.
