Adventures in Making Jam

Posted on May 8, 2009. Filed under: Money, Recipes | Tags: , , |

A friend recently gave me some fresh produce that I haven’t been able to use all of, and the fruit was getting quite ripe.  I was wondering what to do with it, since my diet limits my fruit intake, and my little guy has been under the weather and so hasn’t been eating much.  I didn’t want it to go to waste – a part of my new budget mindedness is using everything we have in a timely fashion, thereby not wasting money on things we buy but don’t use.  Just because I didn’t buy this fruit is no reason to let it be wasted!

So I hit the internet for inspiration (of course), and found a great recipe for a small batch of jam!  I am currently cooking down my 1 1/2 ripe mangos, plus a small can of pineapple chunks for a little extra flavor, honey, a small pat of butter, and a little lemon juice.  If it turns out well I’ll post the exact recipe.  It is smelling pretty good so far, so I’m hopeful!  🙂
