Busy Day


Well, Pardon the Pun, but today has been a very fruitful one for us.  We dug down deep into one of our  freezers and came up with a bunch of fruit to make into jam...This is the time of year when we like to clean out some of the food that we have and can/bottle some of it....Today is a beginning and I hope we can continue until the rest if finished. 

This is a photo of what we did today...We began really early in the morning and took us up to the afternoon...Very enjoyable day, to say the least.  This Jam is made up of what we call Bankberries (Cranberries) that were picked by us, Rhubarb that we grow and applesauce.  Now that makes a very nice jam.

Tomorrow, hopefully, it will be Bakeapple (Cloudberry) Jam Plus Cherry, too.  Will keep you posted on our success...

Have a Wonderful Day!!!!

    1. No recipe in particular...we used five gallons of cranberries, 4 bags (3 lbs. each) of apples, cooked, about 4 lbs. of cooked rhubarb,8 cups of sugar...we let the cranberries cook to a rolling boil being careful not to burn on the bottom of the pot, a lot of stirring :) added the others, then canned...Hope this helps...
