Summer Fruit

AS you may have noticed, the stores are full of strawberries and other fruit right now. I like to find some good fruit and make jam or jelly at this time.  Here is a link to a great resource that will give a step by step process along with a lot of good ideas.  This page is all about cooked jelly.

In  these financially tough times, preserving food is great way to stretch your budget and let your family help with a task that will reward them.  If you want to limit the amount of sugar or use a sugar substitute, there are ways to do that do.  Pectin is made from apples so if you cannot find pectin you can always add some apples to your recipe.  This is also a good way to limit sugar.


Go out a find a Farmers Market or pick up some fruit and make some jelly or jam. You will be glad you did.
