                         Fresh well-washed black berries
 Mash the berries with a potato masher.  Measure the pulp and add one pint of su
 gar to each pint of pulp.  Bring the mixture to a full bubble and cook 30 minut
 es.  Be sure to skim the mixture while it is in the pot, so that the paraffin w
 ill seal properly.  The best skimmer is a wooden spoon.  Ladle the preserves in
 to sterilized jars.  Melt paraffin carefully, removing all bubbles with a steri
 lized spoon.  Pour it until it is about 1/4 inch thick on top of each jar of pr
 eserves.  Let it stand and harden.
