7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Black Raspberry Jam on: July 07, 2014 10:42:17 AM

So yesterday I began my Adventures In Canning (tm).  On Saturday, I went and picked 3 pounds of blueberries and a bunch of black raspberries and the raspberries were my first victims in my adventures.

I used a combination of various recipes I found online, but basically:

4 c smushed black raspberries
2 c sugar
2 T pectin
1 lemon (juice and zest)


Various steps (excuse the fact that they're out of order):  From L-R, putting on lids, testing to see if its set, bottom: all of the ingredients beginning to cook.





When we were done, we had 11 little jam jars full of black raspberry jam.  I loved hearing the little pings as they vacuum sealed themselves!




And of course, the best part of canning is eating it!




It was so yummy and I'm totally hooked on canning!

I haven't decided what I'm going to make with the blueberries yet, but mmmm, are they good.

When and why did you begin making purses, bags, and wallets?

I started making purses about 10 years ago, my first project was a patchwork corduroy bag without a pattern. I didn't even make a lining. I constructed most of my bags without patterns for a long time. Once I found craftster, I followed a few tutorials (The Jordy Bag square bottom purse) and applied my newfound skills to my pattern free purse making.


How long have you been sewing?  

My mother taught me how to hand sew when I was younger, but I didn't start using a machine until about 12 years ago


What type of sewing machine do you have?

I have a Bernina Artista and I love it!



Do you have any tips for anyone looking to make their first bag?

Find a tutorial on craftster and keep trying


What other sewing projects have you tackled?

I've made 2 crib quilts, a variety of nursery items for my son. Infant and children's clothing, adult's clothing, kitchen accessories, curtains.


What other crafts do you enjoy?

Tie dye, hair accessories, bead and wire jewelry.


What's your favorite aspect of Craftster?
The tutorials of course!


What's your favorite PBW project on Craftster that you've posted?

My best Plaid Spring Purse




What's your favorite project on another board that you've posted?

Electric Guitar turned coat rack. It was heavy and required a little handywork from the hubs, but it worked.





What's your favorite PBW project on Craftster that someone else has posted?

Definitely the Jordy bag.
