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.

@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).

Jam season again. I just tried a basil-blackberry mix, which is good. Follow your favorite blackberry jam recipe, adding in about a cup of minced fresh basil and the zest of a lemon tied in a bag while the berries cook down. I also added a good dollop of vanilla extract right before ladling into jars.

Oh that sounds soooo good @Bonehead. I also love basil with peach. Actually, I love basil with almost any fruit Smiling

Now I want to make Jam......
