January Jam

Last summer when we were picking our bumper crop of raspberries, we froze most of what we picked because I simply didn’t have the time to make jam

(we picked several kilos of fruit every day for a couple of weeks; here’s hoping for another crop like that this year!)

This week, I took the enormous size-of-a-beachball bag of raspberries from the freezer. Someone had put over 7 kilos of fruit into one large bag… (not looking your direction, beloved husband)

So we started into a mammoth jam making session over the past 2 days. 

40 jars later, one hideously boiled-over burnt stove top, I think we have enough to last us until the summer.
