don't ya hate when that happens?
Made peach jam last evening...
For some reason I thought I had used the recipe in the certo box....so I mindlessly read it....began peeling and chopping the fruit...one eye on the TV....came to add the sugar.....and thought holy cow! that's a lot of sugar....added the sugar and juice of a lemon....thought I didn't remember doing that before.... and as I am stirring...I am remembering that 2 years ago I made a batch that I over cooked and it got a bit of a caramel taste....this called for only cooking a minute?
So when I got it into the jars, it's jars half full of fruit and the other half is peach flavored syrup....
That wasn't the recipe I meant to use!
So....this morning I rushed out and bought more peaches (and jar lids!) and will try to figure out what recipe I used 2 years ago......and what to do with 9 jars of peach flavored syrup.....might make a good base for a sweet and sour mustardy hot sauce for pork or chicken....what do you think?
