So far, so good. Jam and syrup totals to date:
Dandelion jelly: 1 batch (3 cups)
Strawberry jam: 1 batch (7 cups)
Strawberry-rhubarb jam: 1 batch (7 cups)
Strawberry, raspberry, or raspberry-peach freezer jam: at least 6 batches (4.5 cups each)
Black raspberry jam: 2 batches (7 cups each)
Raspberry jam: 4 batches (7 cups each)
Rose-petal jam: 1 batch (4 cups)
Total so far= 81 cups (5 gallons) That’s a little more than a cup of jam per person in my family per month for a year.
Raspberry syrup: 1 batch (1 gallon)
Total sugar used= 74 cups, or about 35 pounds (Yikes!)
More to come as the blueberries and peaches ripen… or maybe I’ll just freeze the rest. Anyone want to come pick raspberries?
Update (August 20): add in 18 cups of blueberry jam and a gallon of red currant syrup.
