One of my favorite treats is raspberry jam. I love using a spoonful to top off a bowl of vanilla ice cream, slathering a warm scone or sweetening up yogurt. My wonderful mom always stocked our fridge with homemade jam growing up, so I've had a hard time switching to store bought flavor (and prices). As I've mentioned before, berry picking is one of my favorite summer pastimes and I wanted to make sure I made jam this summer. So yesterday afternoon I went over to Bean's house and with matching hats atop our heads, we headed out to Underwood Farms.
I couldn't resist taste-testing the jam that evening, so I baked a raspberry jam crumble pie and gave myself a stomachache indulging in my favorite fruit preserve.
