It's stupid simple. You mush up yer fruit, dump it on top of your sugar and pectin, then divy into jars and freeze. How is it that I've never made this before! I think it's going to become my new favorite thing! I could be that crazy lady who is always giving people jam. :)
But seriously, I was looking through Ball's Blue Book Guide to Preserving and there are a ton of recipes in there that I really want to try, like salsa, marinades, different kinds of jams and spreads, and recipes for using your canned vegetables or other preserved items. I feel like I got all this for free (even though I bought the book a long time ago and totally forgot I had it).
So I have a few jars of jam and would love to share (really, it's the best jam ever). Especially if the sharing involves some warm biscuits or scones with clotted cream and good conversation.
