Yesterday was jam making day…for three reasons.
1. Strawberries were cheap.
2. Rhubarb was plentiful.
3. Spencer’s birthday is coming up and I thought I would give him a jar or two…
I had a little trouble too because I doubled the recipe. Then my pectin from last year looked a little iffy so I used bulk pectin that I bought from the Amish and didn’t know how much to use. It was a complete and total guessing game as part of the pectin was listed as not needing sugar and part was needing sugar. I kind of used this recipe…or at least is was my foundation before everything went haywire.
It’s set now and all in all it’s pretty good. A little sweeter than I like but I think I am the only one who will be saying anything about it being too sweet….Hubby will say there is no such thing. I am off to make some homemade buns. Nothing is better than homemade buns and jam.
