Kerry Blackberry Jam...

Just finished making the very first batch of new season blackberry jam... Calling it Kerry Blackberry and hoping the tourists will buy me out.. only 12 jars this week... Will do a tasting as the flavour is intense. It will be irresistible

We need sun as many of the berries are not filling out with the chill we have now.. but even so a rich crop this year...

Kerry Blackberry, VERY "customer friendly" name. I'm sure they will be gone. People always wish to purchase homemade stuff from the areas they are visiting.

Thinking of breakfast and your jam's making my mouth water!
Will have to settle for my neighbour's home-made marmalade which is pretty good!

Well done on your jam making I am sure it will sell out very quickly

I agree there are abundant berries that need to fill and ripen yet but also a lot that are already ripe. Been out with Teazle who has again had her fill and picked another 1.5 pounds now draining waiting to freeze. At this rate I wont have room for anything else, but hey its free food

exactly so! Here the head of each branch is ripe and occasionally a branch deep in the hedge in sheltered places.. picking a pound each time already and the crop ahead is huge .. just need some sun...I will enjoy a few berry days this next while..

I am lucky and seem to have some great juicy black berries growing at the end of my garden. In the gap between my fence and my neighbours. So I am picking them as the are free from the car fumes and other stuff.
So I am looking forward to lots of blackberry and apple crumples and such. I am sure your jam will sell very quickly I think I might see if my mum will make some.

Wise lady! The lane here is private and traffic is almost non existent. I see folk picking along busy roads, bottoms sticking out

Or maybe our wet climate purifies them

But I choose secluded places. Plenty of them here

Cannot eat fruit so all will go to jams; or later will juice some down and add honey... doing Lavender Honey etc now also. Blackberry chutney sold well last year too...

The jam sounds scrummy. I have several big containers of blackberries sitting in the freezer and I made blackberry ice cubes to go in the new Blackberry & Elderflower Pimms for my BBQ. Now I just need the cooking apples to ripen for blackberry & apple pie.
