Passing It On
Every summer when I was a child I picked berries with my grandmother and made freezer jam. When I got older my sisters and sister-in-law would gather at Grandma Ding's to make jam. My grandma's first name was Belle and she married a man named Dingman so Grandma Ding it was.
When my nephew, the great great grandson of Grandma Ding, was visiting I decided he should have the experience of picking berries and making jam so we took a little trip to one of my favorite farms.
We picked enough raspberries for several batches of jam and a pie.
He was a great picker....not such a good jam maker.
He was bored and went to play with the dog.
Come back! Someone needs to stir this jam!
The recipe for freezer jam.
