I had to make room in the chest freezer for the drawn comb and stored honey from my hive that didn’t survive winter… so I took out all the fruit I froze last summer: gooseberry, ground cherry, elderberry, concorde grape, red currant, pie cherry, raspberry, blueberry… even threw in a bag of frozen cranberries. I juiced a huge kettle full and made pancake syrup, honey sweetened jam, juice sweetened jam, low sugar jam…  this pic is just the first two batches. I poured some into a blender of applesauce to make fruit leather and made a big pan of gelatin bars for a valentines project you’ll see later ;0) Imageawn
