9 Delicious DIY Jam Recipes

 In Grow, Make, Tips & Tricks

It’s cheese board season and what better way to add a unique flair than your own homemade jam or marmalade? It may be easy to buy a jar of jam and throw it into the mix but by doing that, you’re sacrificing taste and good quality ingredients. Many jarred jams have preservatives in them which are high in sugar and things that you don’t want messing with your cheese plate or stomach. Most jams and marmalade’s are only 3-5 ingredients, making them a super easy at home DIY.

We also love this hack as a good way to involve kids in the kitchen. Making jam involves a lot of mashing and little to no complexity and is a perfect afternoon activity for the kids to experiment. Grab a couple different berries and fruits from your local farmers market and plan a fun afternoon for the family.
