The Jam.

While I was growing up my grandmother made jam nearly every fall. Jars and jars would be given away and the leftovers relegated to the pantry in the basement for later use. Before this summer I’d never really had the desire to make any, but the thought of summer ending makes me want to save some of that leftover fruit. In my hunt for the perfect recipe, I came across a few that were surprising. Recipes using fruits I never would have thought possible to turn into jams and jellies. Have you ever made your own jam or jelly? What kind?

    I make jams to save all the delicious fruit we can't keep up with! First, the wild plums come, and we cook, strain, and can those, then the blackberries and tomatoes and peaches, then applesauce and pears. I'm interested in making balsamic now, though- that sounds great!

    I have never made it but I've sure eaten my fair share. Would love to try that balsamic and fig – sounds divine.
