We're Jamming

After picking another 5 lbs. of blackberries yesterday (for a new total of 17 lbs.!), I decided today was a good day to make some blackberry jam. I made 2 batches, the second batch I strained to remove seeds, which resulted in a much lower yield. All told, we had 9 half-pint jars of regular jam, and 3 half-pint jars of strained jam.

I'm sure this will be an incredible treat on some bleak rainy day in November....

Look how pretty they look - and you even have the nice jars and lids. There's nothing like homemade jam on homemade bread, toasted and eaten in front of a fire in the middle of January. Even winter can have its pleasures!

Thanks :-) Eight of the jars came from a yard sale just last weekend -- excellent timing!
