July 17, 2013 Michele In The Kitchen By Michele Harvey Here is a recipe I got from Kraft Foods and Sure Jell. Sure Jell pectin boxes contain a full recipe sheet, but I have a difficult time following the instructions. This Kraft recipe is step by step and very easy to follow. I've added some of my own notes. Plums ripen during some of the hottest weeks of the year. If your kitchen is too hot to even think about making jam, you can wait. Chop fruit and put in a freezer bag with the proper amount of water. Store in your freezer until you are ready to make the jam. I've been making jam for over 30 years, so instructions may look complete to me when they may not look complete to someone who has never made jam. If this is true, I apologize. Plum Jam Makes about 10 half pint jars of jam 6 cups prepared fruit (about 4 lb. fully ripe plums) cup water 1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin tsp. butter or margarine 8 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl Make It BRING boiling-water canner, half-full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Place jars in boiling-water canner and turn heat up to boil. In a separate pan, pour boiling water over fiat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling. PIT plums*. Do not peel. Finely chop or grind fruit. Place fruit in saucepan; add water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5 min. Measure exactly 6 cups prepared fruit** into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. STIR pectin into fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon. LADLE immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches; add boiling water if needed.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 rain. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.) (I boil for at least 20 minutes. My altitude is around 3900 ft. Can lids usually pop down within 10 minutes after cooling begins.) Altitude Chart At altitudes above 1,000 feet, increase processing time as indicated. 1,001 to 3,000 feet: Increase processing time by 5 min. 3,001 to 6,000 feet: Increase processing time by 10 min. 6,001 to 8,000 feet: Increase processing time by 15 min. 8,001 to 10,000 feet: Increase processing time by 20 min. *1 know 2 ways to get the stones out of plums. I use a melon bailer to take the pits out of my plums. A good size thumb nail works too, however all of my fingernails get stained on the underside when I make plum jam, no matter how I take out the pits. So I polish my fingernails with a polish that covers the dark stains when I need to show myself in public. **This recipe says to measure out exactly 6 cups of prepared fruit. It doesn't say what to do with any extra fruit, so I just use it all. The smallest bird egg is believed to be that of the Vervain Hummingbird, of Jamaica. It measures just 0.39 inches and weighs 0.0132 ounces Summer Readina Proaram Dental Heath For Your Children On Thursday, July .25th at 1:00 pm, the Julian Library will offer a free educational program for parents and their children in conjunction with Share the Care a dental health initiative.

Can you name this popular food? The snack was introduced in 1893 by F.W. Rueckheim at the Chicago World's Fair. His brother Louis discovered a process to keep the molasses-covered popcorn morsels from sticking together. Sweet and crunchy, this snack now has even more peanuts. Each package contains a prize and now, many say, they're better than ever. You may find classic stickers with fun .facts and digital codes that unlock surprises through a free app featuring baseball and pinball games. In addition to original flavor, you can now get Butter Toffee and Kettle Corn Popcorn Snacks. It's particularly popular at baseball games. As you may have guessed by now, the mystery snack is Cracker Jack. You can learn more at www.facebook.com/ crackerjack.
