I think there are a few kids who won't even try anything else.
Sad day for them this year as my raspberry patch is no more.
Dead from a Japanese Beetle attack.
It really is a sad day for all of us, but not much I can do now.
So I am trying a couple different jam recipes than we haven't had in the past.
Last week I made Strawberry-Blueberry Freezer Jam.
I made homemade bread the next day to give with a jar of jam to the teachers as a thank you.
It is always a hit with people.
I also gave one to my stylist.
I've brought her bread and/or jam before.
She told me she hides her jar in the back of the fridge so she doesn't have to share with her family.
- Recipe here.
- I used frozen blueberries that I bought at Sam's. I just measured out the amount and then let them thaw in the fridge overnight. I drained off the melted liquid before chopping them up.
- We prefer freezer jams normally, but the Sure-Jell packages come with cooked jam recipes too.
- I was able to get 9 - 1/2 pints out of this recipe.
