My Five Favorite Jam Recipes, for Now{16}

Share with friends.

Jam recipes near and dear to my spoon…

This time of year my pantry shelves buckle under the weight of stacked empty jam jars. They glistened under the light of the single bulb on the ceiling, and call to me, “Tom, Tom, get a move-on; it’s time to make jam!” In May, I start with strawberry – rhubarb, and by October I finished up with late peaches. With canning season in full swing, let me share with you my favorite jam recipes.  These are keepers in my cookbook of summer. (Click on the jam name to link to the recipe.)
