Today I Made Jam.

I finally got around to making blackberry jam.  I used the Ball brand of freezer jam pectin and just followed the directions under the label. 


Potato Masher Mashed Blackberries.


It was surprisingly easy.  I just mixed the sugar and pectin and then the fruit.  Then poured it into jars to set and lastly...


Voila!  Three jars of yummy jam.  And a lot less sugar than I expected too.


P.S.  On a completely different topic, would it be completely lame for me to make my own birthday cake?

Oh I've made my own birthday cake before. I made one of those BIG cupcake ones. My mom bought me a pan the previous year. I wanted to use it.
