Rachel from Creech Farms has graciously shared her amazing recipes for the picture that she posted on my Facebook page show below. A rainbow of jams and jellies and some intriguing flavors that I wanted to post on my site since they were very creative. Some of the recipes posted have sources I have posted below the name.

You will note that all of these recipes are high sugar recipes but can be adapted to be made with a low sugar no sugar pectin to drop that amount of sugar required. Remember if you lower the sugar your end yield of jars will be less. If a recipe below states it will make 6 half pints many low sugar/no sugar recipes will give you about 3 half pints instead. I will post the conversion to low sugar at the bottom of each recipe. You will have to taste the recipe to adjust the proper low sugar. When the recipe tells you to bring to a boil do not do so until you have the amount of sugar you desire. If you need Pomona pectin since its the only alternative for liquid pectin you can find it in my SB Canning Store


If you don't want to make these jam/jellies and would like instead to purchase them Creech Farms they have a Facebook page that you can contact Rachel and have them shipped direct to you! Here is the link to their page: Creech Farms
