    Re: General Food Talk

    My aunt makes homemade jams and we get them for Christmas. I try to ration it, but her jams are so good that I usually cave and eat it all by about February!

    We've got a local vendor who makes the most amazing jams and jellies. My favorite is probably their peach spice jam. YUM!

    We have used it .I knew it was yummy and num num .I say it to my youngest grandchild when she won't eat. It doesn't always work.

    My sister and I trade out too. She makes the best fig preserves and pear honey.
    I take her frozen veggies.

    I made a lot of jellies this summer and had a lot of blackberries to go in the freezer. I made picante sauce to. I also have lots of peaches in the freezer so the peach spice jam sounds great .

    She's not "Jackie's Jams" at the Farmers' Markets and SOL (Seasonal-Organic-Local) Market, is she?
    Because those jams are phenomenal!

    No...although she has talked about renting a commercial kitchen at some point :-) (We actually work really well together, but unfortunately that's only a couple of times a year because we live on opposite coasts.)

    She's coming for a visit in October (she's donating a kidney so that I can move to the top of the list...we have incompatible blood types so she can't donate directly to me, so she meets with the transplant team in October to get her final approval), and she's already sent me a list of the things she's bringing :-)

    This might sound really stupid but how do you make cucumber water? I have made some before... but the flavor wasn't strong enough. How long do you keep the cucumbers soaking?

    I just cut them up and throw em in th water. Lemons or Cukes, it doesn't take long for the water to take on the flavour.
