You guys – we’ve been so busy this past week that I’ve not gotten back out to pick blueberries with the kids yet! I promised to make some more jam with them though, so this morning we drove over to our local fruit stand to buy a flat of blueberries…bad idea on a weekend! They were nearly out of fruit for the day, and only had a couple of pints of blueberries.
Instead, I ended up grabbing a half flat of blackberries and the last half flat of raspberries that they had to create a different kind of jam (and to freeze some too!)
As you can imagine – making jams can be, well – downright messy. I always keep cleansing wipes on hand for easy cleanups – like Wet Nap® Cleansing Wipes. We always seem to get jam on our hands when I’m pouring the jam into the jars, and it is inevitable that the kids will dip their fingers into jam and sneak berries whenever possible!
