Well, I picked blackberries for hours. The weather here wasn't very blackberry friendly this year. There were a lot of green or red berries, or dried, or moldy. It took 4 hours but I got enough to make some jam and cobblers. I make: 2 batches of regular blackberry jam. 1 batch of spiced blackberry jam. (need to find a recipe with a lot LESS spice. All you can taste is spice) 2 batches of Strawberry/banana jam. 2 batches of spiced pear jam. 2 batches of pearadise jam (pear, pineapple, orange, lemon and marchino cherries) 1 batch of carrot cake jam 2 batch of Jamaica banana (banana and cinnamon) 1 batch of monkey butter (banana, pineapple, coconut) 3 batches of cobbler 2 loafs of banana bread. I am going to do Breakfast Baskets for Christmas. I have a recipe for grahm cracker pancakes. It's 1/2 graham cracker crumbs, 1/2 flour. So I thought I'd make gift jars of the pancake mix and then give an assortment of jams to go with the pancakes. Now I just have to think of a few other little things to put in the baskets. I still have a box of apples that I picked at my Mom's to work with. With those, I'm thinking Apple pie jam, Apple carmel jam, apple butter and applesauce. Anybody else working on projects for the holidays?
