I feel like we always had homemade jam on hand while I was growing up. I can remember helping my mom mash up strawberries or raspberries, whatever it was that we were going to make into jam. Raspberry peach jam is by far my favorite kind of homemade jam. It is amazing!
I tried some this morning on a piece of toast and I think that it tasted great. Now I just need Scott to wake up and test it to see if it really is good. I'm debating going to the store to get more jars so I can make a second batch, to share of course.
Last summer I attempted to make some strawberry jam, and it didn't turn out very well. It was extra runny, and Scott complained that I didn't add enough sugar. I thought I would attempt to make some raspberry peach jam, and get rid of all the uneaten jam from last year's attempt. If you are naive and don't know how much sugar is in homemade jam don't look at my pictures... There is A LOT of sugar in homemade jam.
