You bet!
Texas has a lot of wonderful things, but I never got a good crisp apple the whole time I lived there. Of course that was 40 years ago. I guess everyone can get crisp apple now. But here, it goes right from tree to apple butter.

I like a lot of stuff but everyone in my family has always made strawberry preserves. Just pulverized strawberries, sugar and fruit pectin. Good stuff and it freezes well too.

I like it on cheesecake =P

I can't really pick one... I love so many varieties... strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, orange marm, figs and almonds, peaches...

Rather unusual one is cactus, it is really good too, it was a surprise when I first tried it...

We also have an annual love and hate relationship with apricot jams.. we have a big apricot tree and every summer we collect mountains of apricots... of course we make loads of jam among other things.. they are soooo good but after a while we get totally apricotted out and wouldn't care even to look at it for a while...

Im not a big fan of jam, unless its on cakes. My favourite probably has to be raspberry, followed by strawberry

Love most all jams but berry (including cherry) flavours are my clear cute favourite. My two favourite homemade jam recipes in the world (that I've tried to date) are both my mom's recipes. One is "pear and raspberry" and the other is "strawberry daiquiri" jam (soooo awesome on cornmeal muffins).

Gosh, I love jams/jellies. All of the above would be my answer.
