I began making jam and jelly for gifts when my hubby and I first got married and had NO money to spare. After we started doing better I asked our families if they wanted us to go back to buying gifts. The overwhelming answer was NO!!! 26 years later I'm still giving jams and jellies. I make blackberry jam and jelly, strawberry jam, strawberry/cherry spread, black cherry spread, grape jelly, black raspberry jam, apple jelly, apple sauce and apple butter.
