Today I pulled out one of those wonderful jars of blackberry jam I canned just the other day. Popped open the jar (with difficulty btw, because the seal was perfect) Smeared it all over a biscuit and took a bite…… Then spit it back out. Bleck!! Bad recipe, yuck. What a waste of blackberries!! Well at least I made a small batch. And I can look at this as a Canning learning experience, even though I wasn’t bright enough to taste it before canning it. I will be using a simple recipe next time with berries, sugar and pectin. Nothing else special, and it will taste good lol.
