Last Fall my crazy somewhat ditsy friend Jill called me with a problem. She and her husband were leaving for the winter and she was going to unplug her freezer. She had quart jars of fruit and fruit juice frozen all ready to make jam and jelly. Would I take them...she wasn't sure what each jar held...other than the rhubarb. One jar was marked fruit and another cherry juice. She said aw come on it will be an adventure Con. (Not many people call me Con ...but Jill does).
The fruit turned out to be blueberries whole with juice. The cherry is chokecherry. One unmarked was raspberry juice. All made delicious jam and jelly.
Sunday afternoon was a jam and jelly making time One batch of each.
There are still three jars of rhubarb and a few jars of "unknown" juice to be dealt with. I think I got nine or ten quart jars from her...I put them in the bottom of our freezer.
I have jars, sugar and pectin to do a few more batches. It will be another adventure one day this week.
