“They will probably freeze nicely for a few months. Get picking! :)”
Did we? Noooo. So now I sit, wishing I had listened and picked more. The jelly turned out fantastic. I would now be very pleased to have a few dozen additional jars of this lovely jelly. Live and learn.
My mom and I [mostly my mom] made the jelly, and we had a chance to talk about how my grandmother Viviane took great pride in the clarity of her cranberry jelly. She used a jelly bag – which I remember as a kid – never pressing the berries, and making an ultra-clear ‘extra virgin’ sophisticated jelly. Next year I’m picking loads more, and my grandma’s jelly bag is coming out. Glad my mom stashed it away. We’re gonna make it up old-school.
