Jam Diaries Part II

Well, the blackberries were officially made into Wild Blackberry Jam tonight! Zev was the official (creative) photographer.
Making the jam was so much fun and easy! (Granted, I made the quick "freezer" jam version. It keeps in the freezer for 1 year and in the fridge for 3 weeks. Tastes good!)
I do see now why jam tastes so good (hint: sugar).
The jam needs to set over the next 24 hours.
I am thinking this may be a neat Christmas idea. We have a mirabelle tree in our backyard (mini sweet apricots). I can already envision mirabella with some chilies as jam or other various takes. Suggestions welcome!
I am "discovering" all this awesome music this week. Not sure where I have "been" in terms of keeping up with the latest and greatest in music but I am also really loving Lady Antebellum. Must be the Southern girl in me I guess (we lived in Alabama/ Louisiana for the first 4 years of our marriage!) ;-)
Take care, y'all!
