Jostaberry Jam

Back in April, I posted that I hoped there would be fruit on the jostaberries this year. I ended up with one pound of fruit which was enough to make two jars of jostaberry jam.

I'm going to leave the bushes to grow on a bit rather than pruning them, so I hope there will be more fruit next year. They've had a couple of fruitless years. I think it was partly due to pruning too much/wrong and also one of the bushes seemed to have some kind of blight. Anyway they were both healthy this year, so I won't do any pruning and see how things go.
