Looks great!

 

We’re doing this with either apple or peach, whatever will be cheaper to make in August. I’m a cheapo and have been collecting baby food jars instead of purchasing them.

Has anyone tried making jam with granny smith?

@Wrkn925:  If you’re doing that then you should buy new lids, as most commercial jars do not have resealable lids even when you boil them. You don’t want your guests getting botulism!

@GoldfishPie:  Well crap. I judt figured it they had the ‘pop’ top they would reseal. I guess I need to tes that theory.

If they won’t I guess we’re doing freezer jam. I can keep it frozen there and it can survive the hour drive for most guests.

@Wrkn925:  I’ve made it with a mix of granny smith, gala and red delicious. It made it a pretty pink color! And yes, please don’t resue jars. That is a great way for lots of nasty buggies.

@couawilou:  Not a bit. It was delicious. I think the blending of several different types kept any one thing from being overwhelming.
