Got to love the NW! Cool temps and cloudy days smack dab in the middle of summer. Sure does bring me right back to my childhood. For years yummy homemade rasberry jam has appeared in our cupboards and OOOOOOOOOOOO how we have enjoyed it. I never actually experienced the jam making process. Let me tell you the process was loads of fun . .seriously. . .at least the berry pickin' part. . . 48 lbs of berries later . . .a lot of work. . but loads of fun! I think everyone managed to stuff their tummys full of their fair share of berries, somehow become covered in dirt from head to toe, and have a few good laughs in the meantime.
