What’s the difference between jelly, jam, preserves, marmalade, fruit butter, and conserves?
Blueberries are ONE of my favorite berries (it’s hard to pick a favorite). Making them into blueberry jam is one of the simplest ways to preserve them to enjoy the rest of the year.
Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Buttter.
You can make apple butter out of any apples, but if you can, it is always best to go with soft apples. They will cook down faster, and be ready to process sooner. I opt for a mix of apple varieties for the best flavor.
When it comes to jelly, crab apple is one of my family’s favorites. It is sweet and sour and tastes great in recipes.
When I was a kid, my parents had a huge crab apple tree in their yard. I remember playing under that tree and picking crab apples to eat. They were tiny and made you pucker, but tasted so good.
