We also experimented with some microwave lemon curd and made three small jars.
Making jam is so fulfilling and apart from the sugar and a handful of inexpensive ingredients (blackberries and plums were free) it's an inexpensive preserve. If the weather is dry this weekend I want to persuade someone to come blackberry picking with me as I want to have blackberries in the freezer to make hearty crumbles and pies for the winter months. If I can pick a bumper crop I want to make more jam as well. My stock is already depleted as I have given most of my first batch away to family.
