We made salmonberry jam for the first time last week and it’s delicious. Wanting another couple of jars, I decided to pick some berries along the salmon stream running through the woods near my house. The picking was good – I filled a Nalgene with fresh berries in short order. Along the way I kept an eye out for mushrooms and found some gems.
As for the jam, the berries magically disappeared while I sat on a bench in the front-yard – I guess I need to pick some more!
