So last year I was excited to see we had blackberry bushes in my backyard. So I waited for them to produce fruit. Last year the berries were horrible. Never really grew. So I told my husband we should just take it down. Fast forward to this year. We never took the bush down. Went out early last week and saw that the bush had produced a bunch of berries. And then more, and then more. So last night, I was busy in the kitchen making blackberry jam, blackberry-jalapeno jam, and the jalapeno jelly (recipe I found here). Busy kitchen with that and also having the kids make their own tortilla pizzas. And I know I will have more blackberries coming in, so I will be making more. And when the Michigan apples start to arrive in the stores, applesauce and apple butter, and apple jelly and maybe try the apple pie jelly recipe, and and and.....
So, I am looking for different types of jam/jelly recipes. If anyone has a favorite, let me know. I would love to experiment.
