This morning I made Raspberry Jam with my two sisters and my Mom. Growing up, we had a ton of raspberry bushes in our backyard and all summer we would pick and my Mom would make jam. The raspberry bushes at my Mom's place are gone now and these days a small basket costs a lot! Safeway has been running a special for the last few days of raspberry baskets for $1. each! What! How can that be right?? And, to make the deal even sweeter, they are big, ripe, bursting with flavor, sweet raspberries.
While making these we were talking about how great it will be to have these in the cupboard and be able to give them away to friends as gifts. But when we each went home with just four jars I thought I can't part with any of them. Call me selfish but I NEED all of these to get me through the year. If I space them just right they could last for a while!
