My husband loves jams and jellies. Homemade are the very best, and when we browse markets, that is some of the first things he looks for.
Last week when we were on vacation we finished up the backyard project ( well at least for this year). There are still some unfinished major things that will happen next year. But last week we bought some shrubs, one being a chokecherry bush that was full of berries.
David got the bright idea that he wanted to make chokecherry jelly. He did some research and these berries are very high in antioxidants. He wanted to take advantage of that and even went back and bought a second bush. ( Although I’m not sure how healthy it will all be when he adds 5-6 cups sugar to it for jelly)
Now the jam making…
It’s his thing and I’m not getting involved except to take a couple pics and give a little advice (& help when needed) in the kitchen.
