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!

Cantalope Jam

If you just want a little something different on your toast.

Take 1 cup chopped cantaloupe and 1 cup sugar.  My Mom made this one and likes the big chunks of fruit.  I would have chopped the fruit a bit smaller or maybe mashed it part way through the cooking stage. 


Boil for 20-30 minutes then remove from heat and add
1 tbsps. lemon juice.

It only makes a small jar of jam so you can just keep it in the fridge.  If you want to store it on the shelf, sterilize your jar and process in a hot water bath for 10-15 minutes.
