Jam on biscuits, jam on toast, jam is the thing that I like most!

Title courtesy of Frances, of course. ;-) Just a post of the jams I have made this summer so I can keep track to know how much to make next year.

Strawberry: 13 jelly jars (2 batches certo & 1 smaller batch?)

Cherry: 15 jelly jars (2 Sour Cherry, 3 Sour Cherry Almond, 2 Sweet Cherry Vanilla, 3 Sweet Cherry, 5 Sweet & Sour Cherry) (3 batches)

Black Raspberry: 11 jelly jars (2 batches)

Update: Blueberry: 7 jelly jars (1 batch) (not local berries)

Gooseberry: 1 batch (farmer's market berries)
Red Currant: 1 batch (farmer's market berries)
Peach: 2 or 3 batches (fresh picked)

notes: the certo set up better than the surejell; don't make cherry vanilla again, Sour cherry almond is the favorite cherry

updating 2007 just in time for 2008 ;-)

I think we should have a jam-making lesson sometime. :)

Most definitely! It is quite easy. And with freezer jam you don't have to worry about the canning process. (I am food safety paranoid and not good with large pots of boiling water.)
