    Just started, (I am sure a bit late) making jams.
    Made 2 batches of Strawberry Lemon jam and 1 batch of Spice Plum. Man they are good!!

    watermellon rine for pickles, this year I made my own mint jelly YUMMMMMM it turned out minty fruity due to the pectin i'm sure. Most important it was better than in the stores of course i used twice as much mint as needed.

    My momma and I made Beet Jelly a few times! Sounds wierd, but it was so yummy!!! You use beet juice and add some raspberry jello (the powder, not the completed jello :lol: ). It doesn't even taste like beets!! :D :D

    That's one of my favorites, too. Although I haven't made any for quite some time. All this talk about jams and jellies really has my mouth watering. With all due regard to Smuckers and the other jam/jelly makers, store bought just doesn't hold a candle to home canned.

    Never heard of tomato jelly!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What does it taste like? Sweet tomatoes? HMMMMMM.

    Does anyone have a good chowchow recipe. Sorry, but you mentioned tomatoes. I don't have anything at present to make jelly with. No longer can find plums in south Alabama. I think the wild ones died out a few years ago. Loved the yellow ones that my mom used to make pies with. Yummy!!
