  1. Does 2 quarts of blackberries mean 32 oz. by weight, or four cups by measure?


  1. I've had so many compliments on this jam! Even my 20yr old who's new to all things jelly/jam etc...swears this is da bomb! Also, have been told by a friend's younger son that it was better than his grandmother's...shhhhhhhhhhhhh! It is delish for sure! This last batch I made with the last of the south AL peaches...I grated a little fresh nutmeg into it. YUMMMMMMM
  2. Make sure you use very ripe peaches. I made the mistake of using hard ones which took 3 hours to sweat down.
  3. My husband's favorite go to jam in the cupboard! We love it.


Well, I love to cook! Big surprise there. I've gotten so many great recipes from RecipeZaar that I finally decided to join. My goal is to organize all of my stray recipes to make sure they don't get lost, and also to remember which ones we love! I like a lot of variety, so I rarely cook the same thing week after week. The trouble is, as time goes by, it becomes difficult to remember all of the dishes that everyone loved and/or menus that were a hit when we had company. I'm hoping RecipeZaar will help on that front. I work part-time and have 2 young children, so mostly what I focus on these days is preparing simple, fresh, healthy meals that all of us will enjoy. Our kids are not coddled - they are expected to eat what they are served. However, I do try to have at least one item on the menu that I KNOW they'll like. They are very good eaters overall, but of course they have slightly different tastes, and my son is a "separator," which makes soups and casseroles a challenge sometimes. Luckily, my husband will eat anything (and I mean ANYTHING) that is put in front of him. :-)
