November 15- Lara’s Step-by-Step Jam-Making Video Tutorial

OK, this one is so much fun to watch and learn from, I hope you won’t mind that it’s a few days late in my ongoing thematic blog post schedule for November, based on ideas from the Ultra Blog Challenge and the Article Writing Challenge.


Lara’s Cranberry-Pear Jam Fixings! 



Saturdays are for tutorials, so since this post was scheduled for this past Saturday, 11/15,  I have another tutorial for you from another of my fellow writers, Lara, the initiator of this fun “c0ws” site:

Ironically, last Saturday I shared a video tutorial about the Jelly Roll Race,

which involved sewing fabric strips together like those in this bundle,

to create a quilt….





Lara’s Cranberry-Pear Jam Fixings!                [Source:]

THIS post is about making pear-cranberry JAM!  From non-edible jelly rolls to scrumptious looking edible jam! 😉

You will want to visit the c0ws site to get the recipe and complete directions that accompany this video:

DIY Video: Canning Cranberry-Pear Preserves

Enjoy! 🙂





I have never made jam before, but Lara makes it look like so much fun…I am tempted to try!


In fact, you might even consider it as an addition to your Thanksgiving meal next week! As Lara said,

“I think it will make a great stand-in

for standard cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving.”


So did you enjoy this video? Have you made jam before? If not, do you think you might try to do so now? Have you visited the c0ws site yet to get the recipe and directions?

    Canning always makes me think of my sister!
    With unflagging energy, she canned all the time!
    Maybe I will surprise my family with this!

    I used to make jam all the time when my family was young. Especially apricot jam because we had an enormous tree that produced an abundance of fruit. While I halved them, our Basset Hound used to sit alongside drooling until I passed him a section.

    My wife makes jam, so I know the drill. Good instructional video for beginners.

    I enjoyed the video, as I never made jam before. I am not a great cook however your video has me curious about trying to cook jam.

    I have never made jam before but this video seems super easy follow. I may have found a fun project for me and the kiddos. Thanks for sharing.

    Sounds delicious! I just learned how easy it is to make cranberry sauce. I am glad to give up the canned kind!
