I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Easy Grape Jam

These grapes had been hanging around too long. Yuck
So I turned them into jam.

To a saucepan add:

1 cup sugar
3/4 - 1 cup grapes (red, black or green)

Bring to a boil, then simmer until thickened.  At first you'll see the sugar get lumpy, but as the fruit cooks down the sugar will melt.

Stir while cooking on medium heat for 20-30 minutes.

Remove from heat and add 1 tbsp lemon juice.
Pour into sterilized jars.

These were very flavourful grapes, but they had seeds. Next time I'll use seedless.

Keep in fridge or process jars in a hot water bath for 10-15 minutes.  Makes 2 small jars of jam.
