Baby back ribs on a plate

Baby Back Ribs

Easy Blackberry Jam

If you are lucky to have some berry bush laden with fruit closeby, then this might interest you. We love picking wild berries from the forest and this year, it was a bountiful harvest. As we still have homemade mead we decided to make our harvest into jam. This should last up to a year if…
