Culinary-andom

Apparently the fall raspberry season started a little early this year...
…which kind of put me in a jam…four, to be exact! 
Raspberry
Mixed Berry
Hot Pepper
and Fig (non-Newton variety).
You may be wondering how I can blame the raspberries for the last two jams? It was sort of a "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" kind of thing. The canner was out, there were still more jars. Don't worry, I still had time to keep up my grand magazine purge! I found an even larger shelf that had been taken over.
2002? Still in the shrink wrap? That could probably get tossed…after I flip through, just very quickly. I mean I had to take the plastic off before the issue went in the recycle bin anyway.

So now the only tough decision is whether or not I want to get myself in a pickle!
(It might be easier to just get pickled.)

  4. I remember making beach plum jelly back in Campfire Girls but I've never canned anything or made jams.

  5. WOW, you have been busy. I remember my Grandma and mom getting into canning. I have never really tried it myself.

  7. Yum! I love jam! People around here make prickly pear jam, because it is too hot for raspberries. Which I miss sometimes. But my taste buds are coming back, so that's a positive, right?

  8. Oooh wow. Those sound great. And hot pepper and fig? What a fantastic combination! Whoa! My parents used to have a plum tree, and they'd make dozens of cans of plum jam. But then my dad got tired of it and cut it down. :(
