Made my first batch of jam at the end of May: strawberry.
The only thing that would make them better would be if they came from my garden. But, unfortunately, we only got about 5 berries from all 6 or 7 of the plants. Fingers crossed for a bumper crop next summer, though.
A few weeks later I enlisted my husband's help to pick a whole tree's cherries (from a friend's front yard).
The pitting "party" lasted a very-long week. :-S
But there were so many cherries, I was able to can two batches...
...and Husband made two cobblers.
AND there is still 2+ gallons of pitted cherries in the freezer waiting for the weather to cool off enough to make two more batches of jam. I think we'll leave the rest for a few more cobblers down the road. :]
What is everyone else up to? I've missed blogging & reading about what everyone is up to. Hope all is well!
