Wild Black Raspberry (also called Blackcap)
The wild raspberries and blackcaps (and golden blackcaps) have started getting ripe and I have picked a pound and a half already. They are in the freezer until I can some more for blackberry cordial. Soon the true blackberries will be ripe and I expect to have 25 pounds at least. I think we will try blackberry wine.
Some of the strawberries that I picked at Candellas were put in a pot with Pomona's and a little sugar and ladled into jars for "Low Sugar Strawberry Jam". The rest was put in a glass jar with some sugar and rum for a "RUMNTOFF"
I picked some grape leaves, washed them, bundled them, put them in some jars and pored on a hot vinegar "brine". Some day they will used for stuffed grape leaves.
I found a good sale on Bing Cherries. 1.88 lb. I bought 3 bags totaling 6.5 lbs. I quickly pitted them and bottled them as " brandied Cherries. A tray of cherries are in a low oven drying. I need more cherries.
