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 ollalieberry, olallaberry, olalliberry, ollalaberry 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).
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!
