It would be a good day to make some jam if I only had the goods, but since I don't and you might, I'm sharing my recipe for Christmas Jam today, cuz it got me to thinking that I really need to get busy and make some homemade goodies, or at least plan out my list. Jams and jellies are easy to make and it's a gift someone can always use and never gets. Pair with some homemade biscuits, vanilla and fudge and you have a goodie basket fit for a queen! And all the recipes are listed here on my blog for the above items, just search away! I know I'd love to get some jam or jelly this year! Enjoy and be sure to save a jar for yourself, you've earned it!
