We be jammin…

Saturday, we picked Strawberries at Groveland Acres in beautiful Helvetia, OR…

We left with 12.5 pounds of berries, which yielded…

12.5 pints (16 oz)

12 half pints (8 oz)

12 quarter pints (4 oz)

Then, on Sunday (the 4th), we picked Willamette Red Raspberries at Rowell Brothers in Scholls…

We picked 13 1/3 pounds of berries, which yielded…

17 pints (16 oz)

12 half pints (8 oz)

12 quarter pints (4 oz)

Not bad, huh?!

Next up… strawberry and raspberry syrup. Then blueberry jelly and syrup, and blackberry jam, jelly, and syrup… Then pear amber… And maybe peach amber…

I love summer!

    • 🙂 Yep! We do kinda make a lot of jam and jelly, don’t we? We seem to be popular with our kids’ friends families – a jar goes here, a jar goes there… Then there is our extended family who have grown fond of them… And then there is Christmas… And the occasional gift for a friend who might appreciate something home made… Funny how quickly we blow through all of it. So we like to make sure we have lots of different sizes, varieties, and then make sure to keep some in reserve for us, too!

  1. We LOVE your jam, syrups and generosity! Thanks for sharing in the past. 🙂 You guys have been going to town… I made about six pints of strawberry jam and was feeling good about it until I saw this. (not really, just wish I was as industrious as you guys).

    • Becky, you’re such a sweetheart. I’m so glad you guys have enjoyed! Honestly – I’m NEVER motivated to get into canning until I get started and then I always wonder what took me so long! LOL! *smootch*
