That sounds interesting, what kind of mustard do you mix with the apricot preserves?

We used to make grape jelly out of grape juice, wine jelly out of the best wine you can find. Today, I don't want to go to that much work but it was fun at the time.

Whatever you like. I use some pretty fancy mustards and try different ones. Jack Daniels puts out one that works well. The recipe is half and half, but that is way too much mustard. I start with a small amount of mustard and adjust by tasting. Maybe a tablespoon of mustard to a cup of apricot jam. Melt them together and taste. Add more mustard gradually until you like the flavor.

Seriously, no one will guess how easy this is. It is wonderful with fried chicken. Of course, the better the jam, the better the dipping sauce. You want a jam that tastes like apricots, not just jellied orange dyed sugar.

Nope. When I was quite young, our neighbors used to give us a few small jars of grape jelly that they put up.

No OP I have not made grape jelly but I love it...given up on making/canning food for one person. Nothing better as a kid than grape jelly and pb, IMO.
because that is part of the fun of a forum like this. Not only answering questions and giving advise but telling negatives as well. I don't find this insulting or annoying at all, unless the people are down right rude to others.

Now, for me, we also do not like grape jelly or jelly period. I do make a lot of jams. My favorite is cherry, followed by strawberry. I am not a huge jam eater but spoiled brat is.

I also like to make an onion wine jelly and other jams with jalapenos, but those are for using with pork dishes, chicken dishes and such, not for just eating on toast or waffles.

I used to make strawberry jam when I was a teenager. And, it was fun and good to eat.

If I grew grapes, I certainly would make jam, but otherwise, itís too cheap and available to bother.
