Do you go berry picking? Its a fun way to spend some time outdoors, your berries are a much better price and you know they are fresh ! I certainly don’t have room or the right location to grow a variety of Berry plants for Jam making, but, fortunately I live close to several U-Pick farms for Raspberries, Strawberries & Blueberries. I forgot to bring my camera on most trips .
Here is the Organic Blueberry Farm and their very sweet dog.
It was a beautiful day and the bushes were loaded with fruit!
We left with about 9 lbs. each
which I used to make jam 🙂
This is a pectin free and low sugar recipe, I love making jam this way!
I made Strawberry & Raspberry Jam with the same method, it is a bit tricky but worth the effort! The flavour is pure! If you’re interested here is the website that I found explaining this technique The High Heel Gourmet
Our berries were about 2-3 weeks early this year, and may very well be finished by now, they only last a short time. Blackberries are next and should be ready soon! Here you don’t usually go to farms for these, they grow wild and most locals have there own favorite locations , I know I do 😉
