Jam time

Things are finally ripening around here, and yesterday we went to pick strawberries. Came home with six pounds, plus a flat of fresh raspberries and a pound of rainier cherries. I pulled out last year’s blackberries from the deep freezer, and after a quick run to the store for pectin and some supplemental fruit, made jam. A lot of jam.
Put up in the pantry are now nearly 60 jars: strawberry, raspberry, blackberry (with a touch of sage), boysenberry, cherry-apple, peach-pineapple, and strawberry-kiwi (with lime juice).

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
