From Berries to Jam...

 ...In the space of an hour.
Our cultivated gone wild Blackberry patch has outdone itself this year.
We pick what we can without full armor (those thorns are downright wicked!) and cart them inside leaving the rest for the birds.
Within an hour Faith has performed her magic, and voila, in the place of the basket of berries stand shining jars of Blackberry/Strawberry Jam, ready to be spread on toast in the morning (or in this case carried down to the cellar for days to come).  This is done almost every other day, as the Blackberries continue to ripen and amaze and charm us!  :)
