Day two of making jam. The great news is last night’s jam set nicely and my first attempt at canning was successful! Today’s jam came from Food & Wine magazine, my new guilty pleasure. The piece on Best Homemade Gifts is what sparked my interest in making my own jam. I ended up altering the recipe a little bit, I bought a different type of pears and I didn’t have any honey. I still think it turned out nicely. I am waiting to see if the jam sets a bit more, it may be a little runny….but it certainly has an excellent flavor. I am not going to type out the recipe, simply click on the link above. I also preserved the jam using the same canning process as last night. I am listening to the jars’ lids popping down at random….fun!
I am kind of into this canning and DIY gift thing. I found some fun blogs for canning and homemade gifts. I am waiting for a vital ingredient for an extra fun one…have you been naughty or nice this year?
