I am looking for some different or unusual jam recipes - I am tired of the same old same old - peach, blackberry, strawberry, raspberry. I want something different. Last year I tried lavender and peach but you can't really taste the lavender. I also tried a strawberry and fig jam that is . Do you have any ideas??

eta - I currently have peaches and blueberries but would be interested in anything right now. Thanks again -

It's delish! Use about equal proportions of all three fruits. So tasty!

Don't mean to hijack your thread, but do you know if you can make jam or jelly or something with green grapes? We have a prolific vine in our backyard and there's NO way I could eat that many grapes?

I saw the fireweed recipe when I was looking around and it looked really interesting but I don't know what it is or if it even grows here.

miss_sonja - that jam sounds wonderful. i was looking around online and saw a peach mango one that sounded yummy.

linnea - I have never made jam/jelly from green grapes before but I can't imagine that you couldn't. It might be interesting to try making some wine also. I think that would be fun.
