I grew up in Nebraska on a farm and watched my Mom and grandmothers make jam.

I remember shaking the mulberry tree and cleaning up the fruit in preparation for canning. My interest in canning grew after moving to the city and seeing all of the preservatives that go into your food. I began to make as much as I could from scratch, as it was healthier, more cost effective, and it ALWAYS tastes better.

I have been sampling her product for several years - reminds me of my grandmothers kitchen way back when.

Ooooh! I want some! Right now!!

That mulberry looks delicious! I miss all of the fruit I grew up with. Mulberries and rhubarb just don't grow here.
