    My one attempt at doing this failed miserably. I hope to try again soon with the black berries, hopefully this will help! Thanks!

    If you have access to clean apples, their peel makes good pectic which can be added to other fruits.

    Thanks! I'll give it a try in a couple weeks here and report back.

    I went to pick some berries to make Jam today, but none of them made it home. I ate them all. I'll give it another try tomorrow.

    We have a few here, along the river, but I'd rather not fight the homeless guys for food. Not joking. I'll leave the berries for those who need them.

    Yikes. There are so many blackberry bushes here we could probably give every homeless person in your city a 5 gallon bucket full of them.

    I picked these today while swimming at the river. I ate about that much while picking too. Now half of them are gone because I left them in the sink after I washed them. It's going to take me forever to get enough to make jelly at this rate. I better double my efforts tomorrow.
