Motivation.......

............ is making someone happy.

My daughter's really enjoy my loganberry jam so as I had frozen my crop this year and still had some in the freezer from last year I decided that if I thawed them I would have to get myself in jam making mode!

When I combined all the fruit it actually wasn't that much 4lbs 6oz but I knew this would make a few jars. One of the reasons they like this jam is because I do not use the recommended amount of sugar (always put less-guess work) so the jam is slightly tart. I don't know about you but I really do not like the overly-sweet shop bought jam.

mashing the loganberries
One thing I don't like is the messy hob where the boiling jam splatters!
End result
Well it only made seven pots but I'm sure that will make my girls happy!!!

It looks so good! I made grape jelly. WE have concord grapes on an arbor in the back yard.

I'm now thinking it could have been a firmer set. So hoping it will be ok!

Good for you. I don't think many people make their own jam any more.

I am very grateful for my one pot. Maybe my jam is too sweet for you?
