Shameful as it is, I’ve never actually made plain peach or blueberry jam before, even though they’re two of my favorite fruits. If the kids have any say in the matter, I won’t get away with not making them from now on. It’s ridiculous how satisfying it is to look at the bright rows of jewel toned jars, imagining the winter mornings to come made so much better with warm bread and jam.
I recently finished reading Well Preserved: A Jam Making Hymnal (on Tammie’s recommendation). It’s a lovely book, and I’ve been itching to try out some new recipes ever since. Having just picked up some gorgeous peaches and blueberries at the market on the weekend, I spent the morning making a couple of batches of jam.
