Time to empty the freezer of last years berries and make space for new! Besides, all the freezer jam/jelly I made last year is gone. Our only FREE berries are blackberries. I love their flavor but not the seeds. So what is a person to do? Run the berries through your Juiceman!
Yes! It is a wonderful way to cheat. That juice comes out so thick it is almost ready to set even without the pectin. NO seeds! Another hint? Microwave your berries in a glass bowl to get them at least to room temperature or warmer - you get more juice faster.
Blueberries are NOT FREE. We love blueberry jam but I will not spend what it takes to make blueberry jam. So ... I always reserve a half batch of blackberry juice, then throw in an equal amount of blueberries - immediately you have a full batch of blueberry jam that was so easy and much cheaper.
Oh yes, I leave those blueberries whole!
Off to the freezer they go.
My granddaughter is already going to the cupboard and pulling out the Tupperware bowl - she is ready to pick berries again.
