One whiff is all it takes to tell what we grow on our farm—peppermint! Harvesting 300 acres is hard work, by the invigorating scent keeps our taste buds tuned for minty treats. I use fresh mint or mint oil frequently in my cooking and baking. Try this aromatic jelly on lamb or oven-fresh biscuits.—Kandy Clarke, Columbia Falls, Montana
I'm sure to pick up extra bags of cranberries for the freezer in fall so that I can make this lovely, delicious jam all year-round. My kids love it on peanut butter sandwiches. Jars of this pretty ruby-colored jam also make great gifts.
