I bought 12 of the 6 oz packages of blackberries and 2 of the 2 lb packages of strawberries. Basically I got in WAY over my head. Then I bought 16 1/2 cup tupperware, thinking that would be WAY too many, and 2 things of Sure-Jel just in case 1 wasn't enough.
Just in case you haven't made freezer jam before I ended up needing all 16 of those containers, 18 more 1 cup containers, two 2 1/2 cup containers and two little tiny ones that I had in the cupboard. Oh, and did I mention that I needed 3 more packages of Sure-Jel? I really would have needed 4 more packages, but I gave up after I used all the blackberries and half of the strawberries.
This is a picture of the jam, and some of the dishes that making that much jam can create.
So if you need some jam, just let me know. We've probably got enough for the rest of the year........and then some.

I wanted a bedspread for our new King bed since none of our other blankets actually cover the bed. See the bedroom picture in this post.
Well, Overstock.com had a sale two weeks ago and I got a bedspread. I loved it on the internet, but I didn't know if I would love it in person. Well this post is here to say that it's been a few weeks and I still get giddy every time I walk down the stairs and see it.
