Blackberry Jam

When we arrived in Tassie last May Dazz kept stopping to look for blackberries, but they were well and truly finished. For the last few weeks he kept saying he wanted to make blackberry jam, but we've either had the van on and not been able to pull over when we've seen bushes, or when we have stopped all the ripe ones have already been picked.

Finally, he went for a walk the other day and came back with a bag of berries. After stopping in to show off his haul and get some sugar he headed off to the camp kitchen. An hour later he arrived back with a lovely jar of jam. It had been about 20 years since the last batch and he hadn't forgotten the family recipe! A few days later he made another jar, so of course had to also make pikelets to go with it.

We've enjoyed camping under Mt Roland - it's a great view whether it's sunny or cloudy or raining.
