Jammin' it Up!
Some of you know that my favorite blog in the world is "Chickens in the Road". I started following Suzanne and her adventures while we were living in IL, before having chickens and bees and a garden were even glints in my eye. And one of the gals who I met online via CITR is Robin, who blogs over at Rurification.
I've made several of Robin's Jam recipes (including her "Cherry Jam, Three Ways") and they always turn out great. I particularly appreciate that they are low-sugar. I'm using Pomona's Pectin this year with my jams, and I am loving it. This type of pectin doesn't rely on sugar to set, so you can use as little as you want (or even honey!)
So imagine how excited I was this morning to read that she's coming out with an e-book full of low-sugar jam recipes! If you click on this link, you can read her announcement and get the code which allows you to purchase the collection for only $1.99!!!!! I love a good bargain, and supporting fellow homesteaders, which is why I'm passing this info on to you (I get no kick-backs or anything!)
It's peach and blackberry and blueberry season here... time to get busy!
