Sweet Saturday

I am Peach obsessed at the moment.  I have been scarfing down peach italian ice from Rita's for the past few days and it inspired me to make some peach preserves.  This was my first time so I didn't take any photos during the process.  I was too busy making sure water was boiling, jars were sanitized, etc.  Taste wise, the stuff tastes like perfection.  I have no idea if the stuff will set correctly to become the correct consistency.  If it doesn't I'll just pour the "sauce" over ice-cream and whatever else I can find.

Has anyone ever made jam, jelly, or preserves?  Do you have any tips?

  5. I haven't, but have you tried peaches and basil? Super simple, cut up some peaches into bite sized pieces, shred some fresh basil over the top, cut up some bite size chunks of fresh mozzarella and toss that in, splash of olive oil and some salt and pepper. DEELISH I tell you. I've been eating it like crazy for the last week or so. Excellent light lunch that still fills you up. :)

  6. they look fabulous. I LOVE making jam, even though sometimes it can take all day :) the last we made was plum as we have a tree in the garden (I posted about it last Sept I think).
    Personally I like fruit things with white meat or fish - so you could use it to baste chicken/turkey, or as an addition in a fish tortilla - I put mango in mine. x
