    And all wild hand-picked, Barefootheart! I forgot to photograph the blueberries we harvested the day following that first photo. The papers say it’s a bountiful year for berries.

    Actually, you probably could, Goodbear. For us, the hardest part is sopping up the water that boils over onto the stove from the canner because the stove isn’t level!

    Blueberry marmalade was E.g.’s choice, Al. (And yes, it’s yummy.) Besides the standard canning text, we have a neat book of recipes that make only two or three jars of anything at a time so we can dare without risking much.

    “…dare without risking much” — I like that! You could call it a “mini-dare”. As in “It was mini-daring of me to attempt to make 7 types of jams and a picnic supper for Aunt Theodora in one weekend.” Actually, come to think of it, that was mighty daring, but you pulled it off! …with a little help from me, I might add 😉

    It meant going to bed at 11 and getting up at 6, Eyegillian; apparently, a lot of people would kill to get that much sleep. Don’t tell anyone that it took me two days to recover from the picking, processing, and picnicking.

    Yeah, it’s heady stuff all right, Steph.

    Spiced Goose, sounds exotic.

  9. lavenderbay says:

    It’s all in the marketing, Tony! It’s a gooseberry relish for meats: gooseberries stewed with cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.
    Do gooseberries grow in Australia?
