We have a bumper crop of both Golden and Red Raspberries this year. I don't know if it's the excessive rain or if the bushes have just finally matured. The berries are large and juicy. I had two gallon ziplocks in the freezer from last year and decided it was time to make jam. I haven't made raspberry jam before, just strawberry and pear jam. Speaking of pear jam, it is to die for. I use a recipe that was given to me by my mother in law. But again, I digress, back to raspberry jam. I managed to get 40 jars in assorted sizes. I can't imagine we will go through all of that in one year so I plan on giving plenty of it away as gifts. I must say it turned out delicious. Nothing beats homemade preserves. There are many, many more berries left on the bushes. I haven't decided if I will freeze them or make more jam. I'm sure I will give some of them away as well. Here's hoping your berries are producing profusely. Happy canning!
