I'm always on the look-out for interesting jam combinations. Received as gifts: apricot-pineapple, peach-jalapeno. I've done up: blueberry-raspberry (calling it blazberry), chocolate-raspberry (add 1 bar of dark chocolate to berries as they cook), peach-banana. Share your winning combinations.

Not necessarily a combination, but lemon verbena jelly is wonderful. Perhaps lemon verbena with some berry for a new combo?????

Those all sound great, Deb. I haven't done jams or jellies for years, but they are worth the time and effort.

Linda ~ I agree that the Lemon Verbena jelly is wonderful and wonder how it would be if blueberries were added. Hmmmm.... someone try it and let me know. Whistling

Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

@Bonehead--curious about the peach banana jam. Does the banana make it a cloudy-looking preserve/jam?

Linda, it is not a crystal clear jam like berries give you, but not real cloudy. Really good flavor, and now I'm trying to remember the ratio of peach to banana, I think maybe 3/4 peach to 1/4 banana? Can't find any notes I might have made and it's been a few years since I've made this up. Here's one I found online that sounds right, I had forgotten that it also had chopped cherries in it. (I lost a lot of data in computer crashes and also ditched/lost many of my old cookbooks).
