Ok, I'm in my pjs, I have a cup of tea, and I have the book. Yes, we are talking about the same book, and I have numerous tabs in it, so I've used it. Everything I've made from it is geared toward being canned. The infused oils aren't, but I don't think that's surprising. There are some very interesting jam combos, like cranberry/pear/lemon that I've tried and liked. I am certain that I had the book from the library first and then decided to buy it.
My very favorite recipe? Not in this book, but rather on an old, faded index card, in my mom's handwriting (she's been gone 6 years) "Aunt Martha's (my dad's sis) Kosher Dills" with a pencil note on the back saying "call Mrs. Koske at 655-1234 for fresh cukes". I have not idea who that is, but it sure takes me back to growing up and summers as a kid....
