I love jam. Not just any jam but home made jam. Mess up your entire kitchen jam. Stick your feet to the kitchen floor jam. Make you feel like June Cleaver jam.
But, one problem: fruit is not plentiful and cheap in the last few days of the year. So. What about a winter jam?
I had seen Carrot Cake Jam recipes in magazines last fall, and was intrigued. Ooey gooey cinnamony jam that you can make in the dead of winter. Maybe they are on to something. And they were right – this really is carrot cake in jam form. Yum.
So, with family and friends staying for the holidays, giving you some extra hands in the kitchen, I say why not make some jam???
Happy New Year, Everyone!
