My mum used to make tomato jam which was really nice but my favourite would be raspberry on a hot crumpet.

I don't eat much jam - but my family and friends love it, so I make a lot when the fruits are available

I make

3 or four types of marmalade (including mandarin, lemon/lime as well as the more usual orange)

raspberry jam - wonderful on scones with lashings of clotted cream

strawberry

gooseberry

apple and rosehip

plum

lemon or lime or mandarin curd

I occasionally run out and then I buy either Duchy of Cornwall (the Prince of Wales' food company) or Baxter's or Tiptree or the French conserve Bon Maman.

Boysenberry, raspberry with seeds or blackberry. I like to switch about - on a biscuit, toast, muffin - doesn't matter. My aunt brought me several jars of fig preserves. She makes the best.

Ishbel,
wow, I've never put up jam or jelly or preserves..My mom has and they were always so good. I admire all the wonderful things you do for your friends and family..I think I need to get up and get busy and try my hand at something new...Thanks for getting me started

I love lemon curd or orange marmalade on a toasted crumpet,

sourdough bread with a bit of cream cheese with hot pepper jelly

and my cousin's low-sugar plum jam on french bread

and I almost forgot! Grapefruit marmalade on anything!

Chunky marmalade, plenty of bitter orange rind in it, ginger marmalade, strawberry jam, raspberry jam and apricot jam, I love making it, but don't do it much anymore.

Tomato jam, that sounds good. My mom use to make an apricot pineapple jam I loved. I've never made jam, but, I think I'd like to try.

I seem to give away more than I keep! But I find making jams and chutneys a very therapeutic exercise

I can understand, that is how I feel about baking bread from scratch..no bread machine can compare to the feeling you get from doing it all yourself. And I love giving fresh baked breads to friends..
