Labor Day Jam Session

It’s blackberry season again, so Paula and I spent part of our labor day gathering. We netted almost 4 pounds of fruit (which is no small feat considering how many thorns there are on the bushes).

After tossing in some blueberries, sugar and boiling the whole lot, we came away with a dozen jars of tasty goodness.

But wait, there’s more… Paula decided we needed salsa too. After grilling a mess of peppers on the barbie, they were cooked down with tomatillos, onions and other goodies before a trip to the blender.

There’s something very satisfying about making it yourself.

It also makes me hungry. Time for a snack.
