Recipe Spotlight

I have four children under the age of six, so berry picking has been the perfect family activity for us. I just started preserving fruit this season with all of the berries we picked—this is a spin-off of a super-easy recipe using ingredients we had on hand, with no added pectin, and it turned out fantastic. It's a favorite for both kids and adults!—Sarah Haengel, Bowie, Maryland

In the fall we would go to our farm and pick pears and apples. Then we'd build a campfire and roast hot dogs. Later we'd all get together and make big batches of these tasty preserves. —Tammy Watkins, Greentop, Missouri

I make this recipe with fresh-picked strawberries and fresh basil grown in my own herb garden. This unique sweet and savory jam makes a perfect gift—just add a bright ribbon around the top with a gift tag!

To be honest, I don't especially like cooking. My husband, however, loves it! Now that he's retired, Bob's taken up making jelly. I help him with the pouring and skimming for this one—my own personal favorite. It's nice as both a breakfast spread and a topping for pork or other meat. Bob and I have two grown daughters an also a grandson.

When sour cherries and red raspberries are in season, I always freeze some with this recipe in mind. I've been making jams and jellies for years, and friends and family agree this is the best I make.

Pineapple, kiwi and a hint of lime blend nicely in this unique combination from Sondra Rogers of Columbus, Indiana. "It's especially good slathered on biscuits," she comments.

Raspberry Plum Jam

Raspberry Plum Jam

The thing I like best about this jam is the way the plums stretch the flavor of the raspberries. I make it when plums are in season, and we enjoy it all winter long on toast or homemade bread. For a few years, my husband and I had a small acreage with chickens, rabbits and sheep. Although we now live in town, our hearts still belong in the country! We have six children—three of them grown, two teenagers plus a girl who's 10—and two grandchildren.

My friend and I had tried a fruity jam with jalapenos at a local vineyard and this is the version I created. At work there was a taste test comparing my different versions of the jam, and this one was voted a favorite. I like this fruity spread on crackers with cream cheese, on hamburgers or even grilled cheese. For extra heat, add the seeds of a few jalapenos to the jam.
