I have finally canned something for the first time - Blackberry and Strawberry Jam! It was super easy once I figured out all the steps needed. I couldn't let all those black caps that we picked in Wisconsin go bad. I received some strawberries in my CSA share from Midnight Sun Farm as well, so I added them to the jam.
All I needed was blackberries, strawberries, lemon juice, honey and pectin. And now they can sit on my shelf for a year or so and I can enjoy the blackberries in the winter. I am going to can EVERYTHING!
On my last day in Reedsburg, I went to town and bought this bright yellow yarn. My goal is to use the entire thing up on egg yolk related work. This is a work in progress.
