Preserving season is in full swing and we hope you will do a batch or two for the Hollyberry Bazaar. Preserves must be prepared in approved jars and water bath processed to meet health and safety standards. I am always looking for small jam and jelly jars (125ml or 250ml size) so please leave them at the parish hall to my attention. Thanks for your ongoing support of the Hollyberry Bazaar, Gwen (905-885-8798)
