Amelanchier Jam

Extra berries waiting to be jam.

Jamming away, 1 lb fruit to 3/4 lb sugar. Juice of one lime/lemon. Usually, at this point, when one makes jam, a lot of frothy, scummy stuff bubbles to the top and needs to be skimmed off if the jam is to be clear. Not this time. My theory: no pesticides, no herbicides. Only good, clean carbon monoxide and the salty breeze off the East River. This is New York organic.

One pot, precisely.


This morning's breakfast.

  1. Brilliant! I love your version of 'NY organic' - (not subversive, just a hint of irreverance).
    The jam looks good! Amazing that one can still see the little pomegranate thingies (a persistant calyx?) after all the cooking.
    Can report the safe arrival of my amelanchier loot in SA. Think I should hedge my bets and give some to your mom - I'm useless at growing things from seed.
