Berries and more Berries!

2 weekends ago my son and I picked 9 lbs of great tasting raspberries. I froze them all for the time being. Price was $1.35/lbs, a good price. It is fun picking raspberries, nice treats at hand and very few thorns to tear your hands up.

Yesterday I came across a street vendor selling huge marionberries from her farm. $20 for a flat! Not a bad price at all, and it helps a local farmer. The berries taste great.

So since my freezer was filled, I went ahead and canned 12 pints of berries. 10 of marionberries and 2 of raspberries in pint jars. I mixed them with 1 tbsp of lemon juice and a very light sugar syrup (7 cups of water, 1 cup of sugar). 15 minutes in the hot water bath canner and they are done...

Now they need to cool down and seal. Here is the recipe I used: Home Canned Berries


I still need to order some Tattler re-usable canning lids. Check here for info on them:
