Busy preserving..
« on: December 01, 2022, 13:39 »
The Oregon thornless blackberries were evicted from the freezer to make room for Christmad stuff, so today I have to make jam, make that jelly :D      (Why is thornless getting underlined as a spelling mistake? Who knows? ::))

They were very seedy, so put them through the Mouli to remove them, before I started; the sugar has just gone in and I'm waiting for setting point.... always seems to take forever, doesn't it?

All done now, 6 standard jars and one smaller one ready to give to neighbours on the 25th  :)

Well done Ive got a drawer full of fruit to work through, it was just too hot to stand & make jam this summer. I didnt make any chutney either I dont think as I didnt have the gluts of anything really, plus Id still got jars & jars of it from last year & tge year before,but I dont feel I can give that as gifts .  :wacko:

I removed a two or three large bags of blackberries from my freezer too, to make room for the Christmas bits and pieces.  I've made about a dozen small bottles of blackberry liqueur with mine, some of which will be given as little extra Christmas gifts.
