Busy weekend

I was stuck at home for the weekend due to work so I spent my time making lots of things.
  • I bottled 20 bottles of cyder (2 different apple/berry blends) (Making cyder). The Cyder with only the berry extract is good, the berry flavor is not overpowering. The one made with berry juice is a bit tart and needs to age for at least 6 months to mellow it out.
  • Made 2x32 oz containers of yogurt from a gallon of milk
  • And made/canned jam from blueberries, raspberries, and marionberries using Pomona Pectin. I used only 3/4 cup of sugar (evil sugar) and 4 cups of mashed and tasty berries. These berries came from local growers up here in the PNW. This made 6 pints, one has already been devoured... Yummy!
