It's off the beaten path, so we almost missed the turn, but we drove up to a field of the pretty red berries, got a few little buckets and headed down a row to pick, pick, pick.
these scones while we were at the cabin, and I still have enough for one more round of jam. This is from last time's batch...
I think I mentioned before that this is maybe my third or fourth time to try making jelly/jam with my mom. It's just the recipe on the Sure Jell packet. A batch of peach didn't set up very well, but this one did! I don't know what it is about things like this...making jam, baking bread, making a pie...I just feel so much more accomplished and feminine - is that crazy? Kind of like the feeling, "Oh I can do this!" Ha! It's the little things.
All in all, I'm so glad we went!
