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.
Growing up, I adored my mom’s gingerbread cake with lemon sauce, so I re-created the combination for my family. The spice- and molasses-flavored muffins spread with homemade lemon curd are a new-generation favorite. —Kelly Trupkiewicz, Fort Collins, Colorado
Most people put jam on homemade biscuits, but not me. I love slathering a little butter and this amazing strawberry jam on a piping hot piece of cornbread just out of the oven; it's pretty incredible. —Michelle Roberts, Senior Culinary Specialist, Taste of Home Cooking School
Lemons and grapefruit combine to create a tantalizing spread for English muffins, toast and even shortbread cookies! I give away jars of this marmalade every Christmas.—Barbara Carlucci, Orange Park, Florida
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
