    Blackberry jelly and/or jam

    cucumber
    squash? can you even can that? I mean we freeze it but I would like to can it if anyone has a recipe
    tomato I know there are many ways to can these, we usually just can em straight anyone have a good recipe for them though?

    The blueberry and blackberry jam recipes are good right from the Sure Jel pectin package, those are the ones I use. I use the Sure Jel in the pink box, which allows you to use less sugar so the Jam isn't so sickeningly sweet.

    Last year, our tomatoes never turned off red, so after many a "fried green tomato night", I made a bunch of green tomato jelly. I also made zucchinni jelly last year! The kids love it, so I know now what to do with the "extra" zucchinni we have every year!! I am wondering if anybody does any jelly/jam with mulberries??? I have found several trees and hate for all them berries to go to waste! I obviously don't have much waste around here!! hehe Let me know if you are interested in the recipes! Would be more than happy to share!!
