Apricot Pineapple Freezer Jam

Last year was a bumper crop for apricot trees in my area and I made several batches of this jam. This year the trees don’t have near as many apricots on them but hopefully there will be enough for another batch as last years batches disappeared quickly among the neighbors. This jam is easy to make and is delicious and it’s great to just go to the freezer in the winter and be able to have that great summer taste!



Zucchini Jam

I have always enjoyed having a large garden and then doing a lot of home canning at harvest time. In recent years with my kids all off on their own I just don’t use as many home canned items as in the past so my gardens have shrunk in size. I do always have to grow a few items though. One of the items I cut way back on this year was zucchini, but due to great growing weather I still had a bumper crop. If you’ve ever grown zucchini you know even one plant can produce more than can even be given away – you know they really don’t want any more when your friends won’t answer their doors when they see you coming with zucchini in your arms!

But, since I hate to see any go to waste I was forced to dig out my old recipe for zucchini jam. Don’t know why I haven’t made any recently as this is a great recipe and makes absolutely delicious jam. This is an orange-colored jam. If you don’t care for apricot or pineapple flavors this probably won’t be for you but if you like either this is something you really should try!
