“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!
