Jam and Preserves
When I make jam or preserves, I’m instantly transformed back to my mom’s kitchen. I can clearly picture her standing over her stove, stirring her latest concoction. Mom’s jam was perfect; not overly sweet, with just the right amount of tartness. But she didn’t make big batches to pass on to others like I like to do. Instead, she would use whatever overripe fruit she had on hand to make a jar or two of her delicious jam.
Now, years later, like my mom, I’m known for making jam. This includes favorites like Plum Preserves, Pear-Apple Preserves, and my personal favorite, Strawberry Fig Preserves. The most unique recipe in this category is definitely the Quince Preserves, while the most popular post is the Persimmon Jam. So grab your jars, and let’s make some jam!
Say what? You’ve never heard of “Mountain Berry Jam” before? Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Especially since I made up the name. What else could I call this dark purple jam, made with Huckleberries, Saskatoon Berries, and Oregon Grapes?
The loquat is a delicious, plum-sized fruit that can be picked and eaten right off the tree. However, this unique fruit can also be enjoyed in various loquat recipes, like this loquat jam.
Last night, I had an amazing dinner. I’d ask you to guess what I had, but the odds are stacked unfairly against you. My dinner consisted of perfectly toasted sourdough bread, smeared with butter, and topped with cardamom apple pie preserves.
Lately, I have been making a lot of jam, but today we’re focusing on persimmon jam. Hachiya Persimmon Jam, to be exact.
This Quince Jam Recipe is extra special. Not only because it’s so delicious, but also because quince isn’t available all year round. This makes this recipe something I look forward to when my favorite time of the year is here, Fall!
