Jam or Jelly Recipes
Jam or jelly, marmalade, and fruit butter and spreads: This is where you learn how to can the sweet stuff!
Sweet spreads made with fruit are acid foods and can be safely water bath canned.
Most jam or jelly recipes make a small batch, and you may be tempted to double your recipe. However, it's difficult to make double batches. If you want to make more at a time, have two batches going at the same time in separate pots. This way you keep the ingredients to 1 batch each pot but can make more at a time.
Both batches may be processed together, just not cooked together.

It is true! My youngest took a taste and proclaimed the honey good. Dandelion Jelly was a fun project to try out. I was a little leery as to how it would taste so I only made one batch the first time. I didn’t want to use all that sugar and find we really didn’t […]
