God blessed us with some amazing fruit this year, both on our trees and in the bushes around the Flying T.
We picked berries through the summer. Wild strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries were superb on the farm and in the neighborhood. Our blueberries were a bust, but two friend’s blueberry groves were absolutely amazing. We also did a couple trips to pick-your-own places to fill up on strawberries. As berry season was coming to a close, our peaches arrived by the bushel.
The canning operation was in full bore several days during August and September, and one of the many fun experiments we tried was what we call “Tri-Dye Jam,” made completely from peaches, raspberries, and blackberries we picked right here. We’ve been using generic white labels, but decided to have some fun with these ones.
For Tri-Dye, we modified the Peach Jam recipe from the wonderful website, pickyourown.org, using 4 cups of peeled and diced peaches and 1 cup each of raspberry and blackberry puree.
And yes, it tastes as good as it sounds.
