    Unusual Jams & Jellies

    I love to make jams and jellies that are unique. Types you are not likely to find in your typical grocery store. Other canned items as well that are slightly unusual.

    I cannot resist sharing this recipe with you all, if only to try to preserve its delightful name! Nobody appears to know where the name originated from, although it has been suggested that it was an enterprising farmer’s wife, using up her windfall fruit that came up with the quirky name. The jam is thought to originate from Worcestershire, although Gloucestershire also lays claim to it! Nevertheless, this is a wonderful jam which makes full use of three of my favourite Autumn fruits – Apples, Pears and Plums. The jam is a lovely deep rosy pink colour and is delicious not only on bread, toast and scones – but also when used in steamed jam puddings such as Jam Roly-Poly. Do not omit the lemon and ginger – they are the key to the flavour in this lovely jam. The recipe is easily increased or reduced, as long as the ratio of fruit is the same, it works just as well. N.B. It is sometimes seen as Dumpsie Dearie Jam. Please note that I have quoted UK yield - we use pound and half pound jars, which I believe may equate to pint and half pint jars in the States.

    This is a beautiful golden, clear, delicate, tasting jelly. Avoid the bitter milk in the flower stems, and any green parts it is UNPLEASANT! Great for gift giving. If you want to add more color add a couple drops of yellow. I found no need. Recipe #101039 is fabulous in this recipe used as the sugar or add a vanilla bean to the 3 cups of dandelion liquid for vanilla flavor. May 2011-I did a sun tea approach. I put the flowers in a large jar added 3 cups hot water and placed in the sun then left at room temperature for 24 hours. Strained then proceeded with the recipe.

    Recipe #90601

    A bright pink jelly with a very rosemary-ey taste. Great as a glaze on grilled chicken, fish or pork, or as an interesting additon to a turkey sandwich. Fun holiday gift.

    i tasted this at "philadelphia cooks" a few weeks ago . it was served over lamb tagine, to die for.

    Recipe #84056

    A not-too-tart combination. The lemon is delightful on cream cheesed crackers, buttered toast, or a cake filling.

    Recipe #166294

    Dewberries grow wild in my part of the country. They are very similar to blackberries, but larger and sweeter. This is the my DH's favorite jelly. You can use this same recipe using blackberries or boysenberries. The times listed in the recipe DO NOT INCLUDE the straining time.

    Recipe #168721

    Found this recipe at recipegoldmine while looking for a mint jelly that does not require apples or apple juice. Made this up and my DH who so loves mint jelly with his lamb (I don't) loves this. This is an easy recipe, and I will never have to run to the Market to buy Mint Jelly again when we have lamb. Yipee!!!

    Recipe #168755

    I had a friend that told someone one time that I would make jelly out of corncobs if it was possible. Imagine her surprise when I told her that I had found a recipe. I made this just to prove that you can make jelly out of corn cobs, but it is so good that I will be making it every year from now on. It taste like a mild honey and people request it often.

    Recipe #50140

    My mom made this a lot when we were little. It's "tacky" because it sticks to the spoon and is very thick, but delicious and extremely cheap to make.

    Recipe #146054

    I was intrigued by the idea of making jelly out of tea when someone posted a request for recipes. I tried this one, and I like it alot. Obviously, it all depends on the quality of your tea. So far I've only tried this with a very high quality organic chai, and it is SO good! If you find a type of tea that works really well for this, post a review and let us know!

    Talk about a face mask! This will melt your face off! Dare you try I hope you have a stomach of steel. My husband has been asking for a very hot jelly. My other jelly recipes are not hot enough for him. He asked for it and he got it. He loves it. I don't know who else would try it. Maybe Mean Chef? I don't know it's really really hot. The zucchini is in there because of the abundance in the garden and it makes a great filler. Now you can use this as a ingredient in BBQ sauces or glazes for chicken or pork. Spread it on cream cheese and serve with crackers. Add a touch to a salad dressing for a kick. It's really endless just use it as a seasoning. A good gift for those that can handle it!

    Recipe #95424

    I just made this recipe up while making my Christmas gift baskets... I had actually never made salsa before and this was truly a hit. I brought this to a Christmas party and heard from quite a few that it was the best salsa they have ever had.... I breathed on my fingernails and brushed them against my shoulder... :) I do say so myself- this is dang good salsa.

    Recipe #201288

    I came across this on the internet(don't remember which site). This is delicious served on top of a softened block of cream cheese and eaten with cracker.

    This unusual and tasty spread will light up your next appetizer tray!

    Recipe #23708

    Grape jelly is my favorite. My husband makes this for me. He makes blackberry, plum and crab apple too. He is an excellent cook. He is the canner in our family--he cans everything!! The cooking time is only after it comes to a boil.

    Recipe #61514

    This low-fat spread cooks all day long and makes the house smell delicious. I got this recipe from Family Fun Magazine and it is wonderful!

    Nummy on toasted english muffins or crumpets

    Recipe #29436

    Apples, maple syrup and cinnamon are microwaved, then pureed, for quick and easy apple butter that's great on any fresh baked good, or sandwich.

    I got this recipe about 35 years ago, from the woman that owned the orchards where we used to go apple picking in the fall. I haven't made this in quite a few years, so the cooking time is an estimate (to the best of my memory)...it could take longer to cook down to a thick spreading consistency.
