I am so excited, I finally made my first batch of jam. I have been a total chicken about making jam, thinking that it would take a ton of time and effort and money. I was wrong on all accounts. I was able to cook and can the jam all in about an hour. (I mixed the fruit and sugar the night before). I actually made it before work.
I used this recipe from Food in Jars for small batch Strawberry Rhubarb Rose Flower Water jam. The recipe only required a pound of rhubarb and a pound of strawberries and it only made four 1/2 pints of jam. And the rosewater! I was so surprised at what it added to the jam. I was able to find the rosewater in the ethnic food asile at my grocery store.
