Home Canning - Fruits and Jellies

Do you know your Jellies? If not, read on.

Many home gardeners make their own jams and jellies, and can them for future use. Why do people go through the extra effort and time in today's world? The answer is consistently because it tastes great! There is nothing better than homemade jellies...simple as that.

Recipes abound. All you really need is your favorite recipe or a new one, some fruit, sugar, and a little Pectin. Pectin causes the jams and jellies to thicken or "jell".

Now let's see if you know your jellies:

Jams consists of chopped or crushed fruit and sugar.  

Jellies are clear spreads, made cooking fruit, sugar and Pectin, and then putting it through a strainer.

Conserve is made by adding nuts, dried fruits or spice to jam.

Preserves are "chunk style" jams. The pieces of fruit are larger than in jam.

Marmalade is jam made from citrus fruit. The most common one is Orange Marmalade.

Proper canning and sealing is very important. Make sure to follow recipes carefully to assure food is safe. More on Canning
