I Hope You Like Jammin' Too

What I've been up to this month... Jammin'. Our trip to Hood River yielded 24-pints of applesauce! Plus the five gallon-sized freezer bags of blackberries that I picked this summer turned into EIGHT quarts of blackberry pie filling and TEN half-pints of blackberry jam. I'm so happy!

What I've been doing since I finished all my fruit canning... eating peanut butter and blackberry toast every morning for breakfast. Could life get any better? I don't think so.

Thanks to Phoebe for surrendering her home to my canning projects. (And to her husband for picking-up the slack and finishing our applesauce adventure without us.) And to all my other friends with their words of advice. Maybe next year I'll take the training wheels off?

the (literal) fruits of my labor. yum.

Ah the joy of canning. Looks great! I wish I had been more proactive this year but it's kind of hard to get deals on good fruit out here when most everything is shipped in from 100 miles away. It's not like when growing up, we would stop by the roadside stand... :(

That looks delish. Never give up the training wheels, it's more fun to do with friends anyway.
