Berry picking is one of my favorite summer activities! I just love taking the kids out to gather fruits... this past week we got our blueberries! I think Anna calculated a total of over 20 lbs we picked!
The crop was great, and it worked out that Krista and Jack were here- so we were able to take all the cousins together!
I made 2 cakes (a dump cake and a crumb cake) and 6 pints of jam plus we ate a ton of the fresh berries. I decided to try my hand at canning this year; this jam was my second attempt; I did strawberry as well. I think I got a bit better this time, or at least it seemed easier! I'm pleased with my results... I just love the little ball jars. Come winter it will be so nice to have that fresh berry taste~ and all the fun memories of a summer day spent picking!
