I had intentions of making strawberry/rhubarb jam last weekend. I went to the farmers market to pick up the ingredients, but when I saw these marionberries, I quickly changed my mind. I couldn't pass these beauties up, so I ended up making marionberry jam instead! Marionberries are a blackberry/raspberry hybrid that were developed here in Oregon. They are mostly sweet, with just a bit of tartness. Perfect for jam!
I picked a hot day for jam making, and even though my kitchen felt like it was 800 degrees by the time I was done, it was worth it! The jam is delicious!
In addition to jam making, my weekend also included a wonderful yoga/acupuncture workshop (PERFECT way to start the weekend), lots of laundry/errands, picking up our new couch (new to us, anyways), and a beautiful kayaking trip! By the end of the weekend, I was pooped! Monday was especially unpleasant. After a few quiet nights, I feel rested and ready for next weekend! Do you have any fun plans for the upcoming weekend?
