Summer comes to a close…
Time to pick blackberries.
Another First…I made Freezer Jam.. In my Pajama’s :).
Thank Karen Brock-Sines for sharing this great recipe…SUMMER all winter long.
Karen insists on…Instant Fruit Pectin by BALL in the green container.
You need 4 cups of crushed berries, cherries, grapes, plums, peaches or other tender fruit.
1 1/2 cups sugar. (I love Raw organic sugar! Buy it in the bulk section)
6 Tablespoons of the instant pectin.( Karen’s secret)
Put the pectin through a wire sieve to remove lumps, mix it in with the sugar and just stir it into the fruit
Put it into the jars. Within 30 minutes it is thickened, by over night it is totally thickened and perfect…then into the freezer.
We have two new Kittens from Karen! This is Princess Peach with Jessi Bergsma Rockenbach.
This one Sky named Coconut! HAHA
There are a million reasons to be happy…Just remember the good times, let everything else fade.
There is so much beauty in the world!
I hope you have a fantastic HAPPY LABOR DAY weekend.
Enjoy every day…because you don’t get any of them back.
I am grateful for you, for life and…for love.
