    There are tons of fruit trees around my house, apple, pear, plum, not to mention the berry vines, black Berry, huckleberry, salmon berry....so since I don't need a lot of jam, and I can freeze it as needed can I make small batches of jam in my slow cooker...how about grapefruit marmalade or orange/pineapple jam? Is there a slow cooker jam cookbook out there?

    I just went to this site & looked but didn't see any recipes for jam. That is a great site though. I love my crockpot!

    This site had some Chutney's & compotes & apple butters so I bet you could get some ideas there.

    Freezer jams are so easy and quick to make. I wouldn't want to dirty my crockpot and have to wait hours for jam to cook if it was possible.

    I made some yummy apple butter. And with a lot of fruits and berries, you could mix and match.

    Since you have a lot available, try lots of different things. Just because it hasn't been done before, or you can't find a recipe, doesn't mean it can't be done.

    What I would suggest is to find the oldest farm woman (or man) you can, and ask HER (or him) what she had done with these fruits and berries that most people do NOT. Might surprise you.

    You can also dry a lot of the fruits and veggies. One of my best memories is going up into the attic and getting a paper bag of dried green beans. Seems that when Grandma hung them up on strings she'd sewed through them, she called them leather britches. They got hung out of the weather on the porch, and since most porches then were in the front, you could always tell if a housewife was thrifty and hard working by the curtain of drying beans.
