What are you most proud of? Learning how to tell the set point by the feel of the jam.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you can afford it, get the copper jam basin; it makes jam-making much easier and you will have it for life. You can save money on the jars. Bormioli jars are pretty and inexpensive. For gifts, or just that "ooh la la" in your own breakfast setting, Weck jars are pretty special. Jam: it's not just for breakfast any more - we mostly eat our jams with cheese and crackers.

Did you have a recipe for the rhubarb and the tomato jams? Curious to make.

The Rhubarb and Strawberry Jam came from a recipe book called "Canning for a New Generation" by Lianna Krissoff, and the Tomato Jam was from Rachel Saunders' book: "Blue Chair Jam."
