What a fantastic year it has been here for berries. We had lots of rain, followed by heat and sunshine. Thank goodness we also have lots of bees. The end result? It’s been the best berry season around here in years and our pantry is now full of canned berries.
Not only did we can Saskatoon berries, we also froze enough to be able to make wine later on. I find that because of the time crunch with so many things to do at this time of year, it is easier just to wash them and freeze them.
I like to write the weight of each bag on the outside, so come Fall, when I have more free time, I can easily pull out 25 pounds worth and get some wine started.
