Last week I made a small amount of orange-carrot jam. It came out very delicious so I took some to my friends on Saturday and during Sunday I opened a small jar and laid a spoon nearby so that I could spoon some when I went by. As it is, the jar is half empty and I decided to make the rest of the oranges I had before my trip. Although carrots can last in the fridge, the oranges would have to be thrown away. So I did everything but cook it and as I don´t want to stay up in the cold waiting for the jam, I decided to do it tomorrow. I´ll turn the heat on while we have breakfast and will tell Leticia to keep an eye on it while I shower. It will probably be ready when I am ready for the Bank. Do you make jams?

I don´t know ube. But once I made sweet potato jam and decided that from then on I would buy it. The kitchen was left a mess and I had to keep on stirring.

@marguicha Yeah, stirring is the hard part of making a jam. But once it is cooked, all the hardship of making it is forgotten.

I used to help my mother when she would make jam but I don't make it myself. By the time you buy the fruit and sugar it is cheaper to buy it ready-made. It isn't as nice of course. :)

I have an apricot tree and the fruit is ready to make jams for Christmas. As for the orange-carrot jam, I just make a small amount.

@marguicha It is different if you have fruit trees or if someone gives you some fruit. My Mum had apricot, plum and fig trees at one time and used to make a lot of jam.

no, I don't but I probably should... i'd like to make pineapple jams, they're hard to find in stores here... one time I bought a home made one from a craft fair and it was really delicious - I haven't been able to find it again so I wish I could make it myself...
