Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
I experimented at the cottage with a jam thickened with grated Granny Smith apples. It worked so well the judges at Canada's Royal Winter Fair declared the texture "perfect"!
Blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, rhubarb: everything that was thawing in my freezer during Hurricane Irene went into this one. It turned out surprisingly well: hurricane cooking at its finest.
A simple formula for mixed berry jam to preserve the last bit of summertime.
Why stop at just 3 berries?
