Trying to hold on to every little last bit of summer, the boys and I decided to try making jam again yesterday. With a mama who would rather just wing it, we haven't ever been very successful in getting the jam to set properly, but I have high hopes for this batch. I read the directions and hovered like a mama hawk as the boys measured and mixed, not wanting to waste any of those precious berries.
If this batch turns out, I'm going to put up many, many more jars using the blackberries we picked back in July. Oh, what a treat it will be to have a little bit of summer's delight atop a warm biscuit on a cold snowy day in January!
What have you been canning right now?
