Raspberry Jam

We picked raspberries from our raspberry patch today. Our berries are ever bearing bushes, which means they have fruit on them almost all summer. This also means multiple pickings. The other pickings we ate! Yummy! Like on cake and ice cream! Anyway we are making freezer jam with the berries. This jam seems to set up better, than canned jam.  
Yummy Raspberries






Also, we are canning tomatoes like crazy! Froze sweet corn the other day and made dilly beans. Tomorrow we will pick, blanch, and freeze some green beans. Stay tuned for our recipe on blanching green beans, it's so good!

I canned raspberry jam earlier; I do believe the raspberries are my favorite. It certainly sounds like you've been busy.

Gee ~ are you a spinner? Would you be interested in bartering anything for some of your frozen raspberry jam? I have Shetland wool, roving, mohair, home spun yarn...

anything tempting you?

How wonderful! I just love putting up food! Long hot days caning just make me happy as a clam for some reason!

Thanks for stopping by my blog... The berries look wonderful (I had a problem w/mine this year). I'm wondering how you let them grow (i.e. do you provide support? Are they bushes?)... I'm sure the jam was delicious!

I've just stopped by from Cozy Little House and feel like I've come "home"! I miss the midwest and used to have a little farm and am planning on coming back when I can sell my house here in AR. I can remember canning when my kids were growing up and I had a huge garden and made jam etc. Your blog keeps me focused on getting back! thank you for sharing!
