Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I never made jam before but I used this recipe on my homegrown strawberries and it turned out great! The jam set perfectly and my family raved about how great it tasted. I'm giving it four stars because other reviewers noted that the original recip was too sweet, so I cut down the sugar by about a third. Based on the results I'm sure the original would indeed have been too sweet. I also added a knob of butter at the very end to cut down the foam on top.

Easy Coq Au Vin

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Not enough liquid to create a sauce - I will add much more next time, as it was a bit dry over rice. Will try it again though as the recipe was tasty and easy to put together.

Green Tomato Relish

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I couldn’t get celery seeds or mustard seeds by themselves, so I used a pickled gherkin packet mix that also had peppercorns, dill, and coriander in it. Also, I followed the advice of other reviewers, and cut the amount of sugar by about 1/3rd. Glad I did, because it’s just about perfect now and I wouldn’t want it any sweeter. I only made this yesterday and have already tried it with cheese on toast. It's REALLY good!
