Jam Jar

We always loved the end of the jam jar, as my mom would always fill it with milk and shake it up and we got a tasty milkshake as a treat and no more leftover jam.

I wonder how many other people did this. It seems so obvious to me now, but I've never heard of anyone else doing this.

What a great frugal idea, I always found it annoying that I couldn't get to the last bits of jam in the jar. I never thought of adding milk to make a tasty milkshake.

I will definitely try this next time I finish a jar of jam.

Oh the memories

Made me a bit misty eyed, to be honest. We thought we were the only family in the world to do that; I suppose in reality it was a common depression era frugality, carried on long after the depression ended. It was a special treat indeed. Thanks for this.
