Preserves and More Preserves
Your trees or vines are overflowing with ripe fruit and your freezer is full of frozen fruit. What do you do with all that fruit? Make preserves! Jams, jellies, marmalade, fruit butter, compote and conserves are some great ways to use the bounty from the orchard. So what’s the difference between all those different types of preserves? They all have the same basic ingredients: fruit, sugar as a preservative, pectin, and acid either naturally in the fruit or added to react with the pectin to make the preserve gel. In our video, Making Organic Plum Jam, Tricia takes you through the process of making jam from plums, check it out and make your own jam with the fruit of your choosing.
