One hears of England's abundance of gooseberries time and again, but how often does one come across this elusive fruit here in America? Yet if one is in luck, one might find them at more progressive farm stands and this lovely jam is sure to follow.
A trip upstate a few weekends ago quickly turned into a raspberry picking spree after we saw a sign on the side of the road advertising U-Pick berries. I knew that a batch of jam was my first order of business.
Try any of these blackberry infusions: Blackberry Bourbon, Blackberry Mojito (with rum, lime, and mint) or Blackberry-Lemon Brandy/Vodka. These might just give you some inspiration to try a recipe of your own!
