Plum Jelly and Blackberry Jelly

Jars of plum jelly and blackberry jelly, as well as blackberry jam, are cooling on my kitchen island. My daughter and her friend made the plum jelly the other night, and I did the blackberry.

My husband, son and I picked blackberries until, as my father used to say, "Perspiration's pourin' off me like sweat!" A bucket full of berries only makes about six precious jars of jelly and maybe 8 or 9 jars of jam--but it's oh so worth it!

Our canning season is in full swing. How about you?
