My uncle has grown blackberries for 20 years. Since 2002, he has made and sold blackberry jam. I’ve always wanted to know how to make jam, so this year I helped. Here’s a photo essay:
We took a break and, while listening to the ping of the jam jars setting, we enjoyed my grandma’s delicious blackberry cobbler. They still had more jam to make. I had to head to my parents’ house to pick up Sophie, where she had fun day with Nini.
“It is as healthy to enjoy sentiment as to enjoy jam.” —Gilbert K. Chesterton
