Blackberrying

“Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, who were good little bunnies, went down the lane to gather blackberries.” - The Tale of Peter Rabbit

Yesterday, Max and I went down the lane to gather blackberries. The vines were positively heavy with berries!


Most weren’t ripe yet.


Some were half-way there.


And some were ripe for the picking!


We picked ten pints!


Today, I put my new Sauce Master to work. You feed the blackberries in at the top, turn the crank, and it separates out all the seeds for you.


I got about eight cups of pulpy blackberry goodness, which yielded thirteen jars of jam!  Seedless blackberry jam makes Technohubby very happy!
