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?
Foraging for exotic Newfoundland berries and Mixed Wild Berry Jam.
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.
Why stop at just 3 berries?
