RE: Lazy weekend

Thanks, Melody!  I appreciate it.  

I'm glad you had a good birthday and your children made it especially
memorable with the gift of their time and efforts.

Bonnie: The recipes are often included in the packages of liquid pectin that
you can buy. No more paraffin thank goodness...the rubber seals on new lids
are all you need. Look up stuff on your local extension service
website...loads of great info. I canned multiple batches of cherry jam and
cherries in June...next I'll be moving on to the plums and apples when
they're ready. Can't wait for the apple butter I'm going to make!

I used to help mother make grape jelly until about 20 years ago. She
used<br>to use pectin and seal with paraffin, if I remember right. But I
sure don't<br>remember the proportions. I think I have her old strainer in
the basement,<br>too.<br><br>Cyndi if you have a current jelly recipe I can
use for canning plum jam or<br>jelly, I'd appreciate
it.<br><br>Blessings,<br>Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)<br><br>Blessings,<br>Bonnie
