Berry Sherbet & Mixed Berry Jam

Love using fruit that I grow, grows wild or I can buy organic, organic is what I have for my strawberry Jam... I can't seem to get but 2 or 3 strawberries from my yard, between the rabbits and the chipmunks -

Flash Frozen Strawberries

I had several frozen bags of freshly picked strawberries and wild blackberries from last season... nicely tucked away in our freezer...







Spring fruit will be out soon - I decided to make some goodies with last seasons fruit... First up is the Frozen Sherbet... using my new ice cream machine.. I have had and used several machines... the basic - freeze the bowl, the very nice generator machine,  Now, I went back to a basic rock salt machine.

The mixture for the Sherbet is complete and now cooling off!  - Can't wait!!!  Off to store to get extra ice...just in case.

I made a small batch of mixed berry jam too!  had left over wild berries from the making of Sherbet... so I will use it all up (no waste).... I love my  Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker.. It is perfect for using leftover fruit for small batches of jam
A pinch left over....
