When summer spills over with fresh seasonal produce, Better Homes and Gardens Jams & Jellies is filled with more than 100 ways to preserve those jewels of the season. The beginning canner will love the classic recipes such as Strawberry Jam (both freezer and water-bath canned), Grape Jelly, and Peach Jam. For the more adventurous canner, the Test Kitchen has tested and created fun flavor combos such as wine-herb combinations, savory concoctions perfect for making beautiful little hors d’oeurves, and creative ideas like Carrot Cake Jam that make for an indulgent breakfast or a welcome gift. All recipes follow USDA guidelines, include a photo of the finished jam or jelly, as well as step-by-step and ingredient shots where appropriate. To ensure success, the issue also includes full water-bath canning information, proportion charts to help readers create their own recipes, and recipes using low-sugar and alternate-sweetener pectins. In addition, because jams and jellies make such perfect gifts, a special section on wrapping and presenting jams and jellies rounds out the issue.
