Summertime. I love summertime because of all of the fresh fruits and veggies. One of my favorite summertime activities is making jam. Jam is really easy to make. I get so much satisfaction from it, as well as from canning other glorious garden creations such as salsa and relish. I love knowing what is in my food, or better yet, what is NOT in my food.
I tried a new recipe for blueberry jam this year. It is so good! I will be making more of this next year for sure. It has cinnamon and cloves in it, which made a terrific flavor. I was a bit leery of the cloves, but it turned out perfectly.
This is how it looked as it cooked down. It almost looks like beets in there.
Next up is my old standby recipe for low sugar chunky peach jam. The smells filling my kitchen were amazing!
Here is the yummy jam all ready to eat! I think it's time to bake some bread!
