Blackberry Jam Soda Floats


As the seasons change I get so excited when my favorite fruits and vegetables become abundant and fresh during their time! And each season I get this resurgence of love for the produce being grown at that time so I'm constantly saying, "This is my favorite time of year!". Currently it's "my favorite time of year" because we have an abundance of blackberries in our kitchen right now! We are working hard at getting it all put up and the first jars of Blackberry Honey Jack Jam launched last weekend! Here in Florida we get a small window of blackberries in May, and then California has an abundance at the end of August! Those are the best times to buy them up at the lowest price (if you live in Florida). 

From now until we run out of blackberries you better bet I'll be slathering them onto anything and everything possible! Aside from using it on my daughter's PB+J sandwiches for school every day this week, I also made the crew some of these floats! They were delicious and so easy to make! It's a real treat yo' self recipe! - Illene @theurbancanner
