I made my first ever batch of freezer jam. My dad happened to have 1 bag left of his secret stash of Loganberries. They are only grown in particular regions. He can only get them when he visit's Oregon and can fly them back. Homemade Loganberry jam really is the best jam. Sweet but still tart.

LoganBerry- thawed from the freezer. Looks kind of like a blackberry.

A bowl of thawed loganberries in their own juice ready to be made into jam.
The main ingredient :)

Stirring in the Pectin for consistency. Dad made a batch and I made a batch. He let me bring my batch back with me. What a guy to share the coveted berries!

Yep, the pink striped pants are back, and check out the cool apron. That was our father's day gift last year to the master chef from Disney World, so he could be the coolest grandpa ever.
Ready to go in the freezer. I couldn't believe how much simpler it was then I thought. Bring on the strawberries!
