Yummy. beautiful blackberry jelly!. Gideon tried the jelly out on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and declared the jelly a success!! Theo just prefers jelly bread and milk for a snack.
Making homemade jelly does take a few steps, but it is not a hard task at all. It is also a great feeling, knowing my family is eating jelly made from berries grown right in the backyard!
Have you ever made homemade jelly?
