Berry Jam

I love making jam and I made berry jam for Christmas this year.  One of my good friends wanted to make the jam with me and so it was a fun morning of jam making.  

I went to a local farm that has year-round picking of fruit and bought bags of frozen raspberries and olallieberries.
The olallieberry (pronounced oh-la-leh, sometimes spelled ollalieberryolallaberryolalliberryollalaberry or ollaliberry) is a cross between the loganberry and the youngberry, each of which is itself a cross between blackberry and another berry (raspberry and dewberry, respectively).[1]

My all-time favorite desert is Olallieberries Pie and Gizdich Ranch makes the best.  I have taken my daughter every year to pick berries and apples at Gizdich and I love the family run farm/ranch.

We made 55 jars of jam and it turned out scrumptious!
