The berries were all sweet, juicy and plentiful. The rains we are now getting after a month of drought are really increasing the harvest possibilities.
Our fence rows are generally coverd with blackberry bushes as well as around the two ponds.
We saw a lot of huckleberries too which should begin to ripen in August.
We made 18 pints of jam and still froze about a gallon of berries for later use (I'm thinking cobler myself)
Some of the jam we canned. We made sweetend with sugar and unsweetened with just unsweetened apple juice for sweetener. They both taste great.
Tomorrow we try..ketchup.
