We picked these juicy yummy fruits the other day

mixed them with some organic sugar and cooked and cooked and cooked them....
and cooked them some more.

 I was testing a new jam recipe, and didn't want to get too many before trying it out. But now we'll be going back for more!!  
I made the jam the old fashioned way without packaged pectin. 
We're very pleased with it.  It's softer than if I'd added pectin, but oh so yummy!!
 I learned that berries with a hint of green at the tip contain more pectin.
So be sure to pick some of those to help your jelly set up if you aren't adding in pectin.
