This book gives each recipe in US measurements and metric measurements...always nice for those of you who understand the metric system.
I have made the jalapeno jelly from this book. I personally think that jalapeno jelly is YUCKY, but my husband and his buddies seem to really enjoy jalapeno jelly over cream cheese on crackers. Whatever floats their boats.
I wanted to make something new, though. So...I found super cheap blackberries when I was at the store. Maybe someone accidentally ordered too many?? Somebody put the wrong price down?? I just grabbed and dashed to the checkout, giddy with my find...
For less than $4, I made a cute little batch of blackberry jam. I didn't find many blackberry-specific recipes in any book, so I used the raspberry jam recipe from THE COMPLETE BOOK OF SMALL-BATCH PRESERVING. It worked great. It was supposed to make 4 cups (or 4 - 1/2 pint jars.) I put them in 1/4 pint jars, and I got 10 - 1/4 pints (or 5 - 1/2 pint jars.)
|Isn't the color beautiful?|
Have a great week, and take care of you!
