These may have been end-of-season berries, but they were juicy and sweet
I thought that I'd waited too long and missed the entire blackberry season again this summer, but stopped by a fruit stand on Thursday afternoon on the off chance that there was still a berry or two to be had. 

And there was; just barely.   I caught the very tail end of the harvest and bought one of the last flats of blackberries.  They were washed, mashed, cooked and put up in jars by evening.


We ended up with a modest 12 half-pints of jam -- not a lot, but enough for our needs with a few jars extra to give away.
