Making jam - part 2

I like making jam as small gifts to friends. I save especially my quite small pots as they make for cute little gifts and it means I can make more pots. The last touch once the jam has cooled is to make the labels. I like to make them all unique and state the date so I remember when I made them. The trick to stick labels onto glass is to take normal white paper, write on it and dip it in milk. Then place it on the side of the pot and let it dry, it will stick nicely. Sometimes I also cut a circle of fabric to decorate the top of the pots.
