Preserving The Harvest

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

I used to find the wild blackberries in my yard to be a nuisance.  The overgrowth was overwhelming.  Coming back inside with scratched and bloody arms was usually the end result of pulling out the invasive, indigenous vines.  This year, however, I decided to let them hang around a little longer and harvest the berries.  I managed to pick six quarts of luscious, ripe, juicy berries and made them into jam.  I managed close to 14 eight ounce jars of handmade blackberry jam.  I look forward to spreading it on Sunday morning biscuits and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches this Fall.
