Here is a list of the things we have canned here so far,
1. Strawberry Jam ( This was our first canning attempt )
2. Bread and Butter Pickles
3. Canned green beans the other night
4. Our most recent adventure - Blackberry Jam
Went and picked a few blackberries today, not near as many as I had hoped for. They are not all ripe just yet but I did find a few that were ready. I wasn't sure if I had enough for jam but after some mesurements I found that I did have just enough. Woo-Hoo !!! More canning.
Here Katie tries to make off with the loot.
Cooking up the berries and sugar and pectin mix.
Ended up with 7 -- 1/2 pints of beautiful blackberry jam.
I left the seeds in because I don't have a food mill just yet, this is, just yet. I think the seeds give it a nice look though. All in all, I am very pleased with the outcome. Getting more fresh goodies stocked up for me and the family. Not too bad for an hour of berry picking in the peacefulness of the wilderness. Time well spent !!
