First  attempt at Blackberry Jam

First attempt at Blackberry Jam

Went out yesterdy for an hour around the green and picked Blackberries. Got 4kg of them with no bother. Seems to be a bumper crop this year. I wonder does that mean we are in for another hard winter?

Anyway, I then picked some apples from my apple tree and made Blackberry and Apple pies and Jam.  This is my first attempt at Blackberry jam and I am really pleased with the results.  Can't get much more organic then that LOL :-)
