Picking the berries is actually doing good for the environment because every berry that is picked and ingested by us means all those seeds in there aren't planted somewhere else. So go out and pick berries people!
That's what we've been doing for the last several weeks. But what to do with them? The possibilities are endless! We've made several berry cobblers and muffins with them, but the majority have been juiced to become jam.
Juicing blacberries is a little painstaking but a necessity when making jam because their seeds are so big and tough. Blackberry jam with or without seeds is delicious but the lack of seeds makes the eating experience just a little better.
