Every year my grandma made Jam, but not just any Jam~ Raspberry Jam from berries grown in Canada. (She would stow away redman tobacco ( from the U.S. )and trade it for huge fat berries). Gotta love her. So I decided to give it a try. I think I had it a little easier, because I purchased my berries locally (Sorry Redman~no trades for you). I got out the old Fanny Farmer Cookbook... And whipped up a few jars... The result, kinda grainy not at all like grandmas. I don't know what I did wrong, but will try again next year. I feel some what ashamed... I got four jars. Grandma about 60. Berries you beat me this year, but wait till next year!!
