I Didn’t Make Blackberry Jam

I went foraging with Sunshine to a large field of brambles, where Honey & I picked gallons last year. They were at very mixed stages of ripeness and already picked over. We got about a cup of berries.

We found a bunch of apples on the way back though, including some starting to rot on the tree and windfall. Sunshine also picked multiple unripe apples along the way.

I had to stop in the middle to do Sunshine’s bath & bedtime and didn’t sweeten it until I knew I’d be around to stir so I all ended up as applesauce anyway.

While I’d rather have put up multiple jars of jam for the winter, this is what I could manage while ‘Momming’. We’ve all already knocked through the first jar of applesauce in the fridge so I’m enjoying the short-term expansion of our food.
