I've had no J for my ABC Along. But last week, it just happened. Olivia and Evan spent the afternoon and night because their parents won tickets to a concert. They always love to pick the raspberries when they come over. I inherited these plants and they are really invasive but they fruit twice a year and we love them. I spend a lot of time trying to whack them into submission and it's not really working too well. Every spring they're marching across the garden again.
The kids did a good job of picking all the red ones so there was enough to make a batch of jam.
Evan loves to cook and he's a really good helper but he was stirring so fast I couldn't get the picture focused.
For this one I made him stay still, very hard when you're seven and want to lick the spoon.
I just use the recipe from the back of the Sure-Jell package and we make freezer jam. Delicious! So this year J is for jam.
