Strawberry-Peach Jam

I originally thought this blog was going to be about crafty things like the previous post. But I got thinking about it and I decided food can be crafty too!

For a while now I've been wanting to make jam and about a month ago I roped my friend, Lucinda, into helping me. Everyone says how easy it is to make jam but I was a little nervous so help I received. And it didn't hurt that Lucinda brought over her canning pot so I didn't have to buy one. Thanks!

I got the recipe from Kraft Foods website. The website on the box of pectin led me there and it was really yummy. And easy too! I mean there was some prep work involved and I have burnt strawberry jam in my drip pan - but totally worth it. I've had way more peanut butter and jam on toast for breakfast this past month than I have for years. It's that yummy!

So here are my pics - and just remember - a food photographer I am not. Enjoy!

If you have a great recipe for jam that you love, let us know about it. My six-year-old loves the blackberry jam from Trader Joes, but since we don't have one around here and we're out, I need to make some of that next. And come back next week for a giveaway! I haven't decided what it will be yet, but it will be the first of many so tell your friends!
