berry overload

CIMG5306Can you Adam and Eve it?!  There were simply too many berries for us to eat fresh.  We were gorging on blackberries every evening – with meringues, with yoghurt, with whipped cream, with vanilla ice cream.  Berries ’til we were blue in the face.

So we made jam.  Using the original family jam-making spoon I used with my folks when I was under the age of ten. I just love its utilitarian simplicity!  It has a small slotted tongue so it can sit neatly on the edge of the pot, as shown.

Michelob said the jam was delicious.

Yum yum.
