Making Wild Plum Jelly – An Ekstrom Family Tradition!

Making Wild Plum Jelly – An Ekstrom Family Tradition!

Every summer the Ekstrom’s make homemade wild plum and mustang grape jelly.
It’s a family affair. Everybody, young and old, helps.

As Texas cattle ranchers, going back five generations, we do it the old fashioned way.
Like they did in the old days. When they didn’t have manufactured  preservatives or manufactured pectin. (You don’t need it.)

It’s fabulous! Try it!
