Plum Jam

Jams, Jellies, and Preserves

Fall and winter are my favorite seasons because that's when I feel that desire to bake during my free time really kick in. One of the things my family and I love to make during the fall is homemade jam and homemade applesauce. We spent this past weekend making our homemade applesauce with delicious pippin and braeburn apples and raspberry jam with berries from Gizdich Ranch. If you're looking to make jam, jellies, or other preserves on your own, we have some excellent eBooks that you can access from the comfort of your home.
