Although berries can take a few years to get going, the wait is worth it. Once you’ve developed a berry crop, you can harvest from the start of summer, to well into the fall. There’s really nothing better than having several months’ worth of fresh-picked berries from a backyard garden.
Not only does the taste surpass that of the store-bought variety, but, you can freeze or preserve your berries for flavorful fruit throughout the winter.
One delicious way to make use of your berries is to make a simple jam. Whether you choose to use blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, or a combination of all three, jam is easy to make and is an instant crowd-pleaser to complement almost any meal.
The berries pictured here – picked fresh from our office garden – are perfect for jam, as the tartness of our blackberries is balanced by the sweet, milder taste of the white raspberries. The red raspberries make for the ideal base flavor.
