Happy belated 4th everyone!

Wild black raspberries have the most wicked thorns.  It takes some careful maneuvering to reach those dark, plump berries on the bush, but when you do, it’s well worth the effort.  Tonight we picked about 4 pints of berries so I could make homemade black raspberry jam.  I’m thankful we have these little beauties growing in our back yard.

I followed the recipe in the box of fruit pectin (Sure-Jell) I bought. The flavor of this jam is incredible.  It will certainly taste good during the winter months when fresh fruits are scarce.  But let’s not talk about winter quite yet…

  1. Love the pictures! You’re so fortunate to have your own berries waiting for you to pick them. I’m sure you’ve captured the essence of summer in your jam. Pretty cool Eileen. Hope you had a wonderful holiday.
