Full Jelly Cupboard

This is my jelly cupboard.  It's a hand me down, so it came pre-distressed.  The outside is painted a soft sage green.  

I alphabetized it all - from left to right on the 2nd shelf and then from right to left on the bottom shelf. 

Kinda Monk, I know.   But now I can find what I'm looking for.  
  • Blackberry Jelly
  • Blackberry Syrup
  • Blackberry Barbeque Sauce
  • Blueberry Lime Jam
  • Cantaloupe Lime Mint Jam
  • Cantaloupe Orange Pineapple Jam
  • Cranberry Jam
  • Elaeagnus Orange Jam
  • Peach Chutney
  • Peach Jam
  • Peach Maple Jam
  • Peach Vanilla Jam
  • Pear Ginger Jam
  • Pear Maple Jam
  • Pear-Plum Vanilla Jam
  • Pepper Ginger Jelly
  • Plum Preserves with Star Anise
  • Plum Sauce
  • Raspberry Jam
  • Rhubarb Marmalade
  • Rhubarb Ginger Marmalade
  • Rose Jelly
  • Strawberry Rhubarb
  • Violet Jelly
The little jars on the top shelf are for gifts.   Every time I make a batch of something, I put some in a few of those cute little 4 oz jars to give as gifts.  I try to put both traditional and unusual types of jam in a gift bag.   Since the jars are little, if the recipient doesn't like it, they don't have to worry about wasting a lot of it.   Plus, if I put a few different kinds of jam in a gift, I'm likely to give them at least one kind that they really like. 


  1. I envy your gorgeous, organized, and full jelly cupboard!

  2. That is beautiful! And amazing. As a recipient of one of your jam-gifts, I'd like to say what a lovely idea it is. :) Thanks!

  3. Hey, can you use regular limes instead of Keys with your blueberry lime jam?

  4. Hi Janiel! Yes, you can. Any limes will do.

  5. Have you ever tried Crab apple jelly? It is very pretty. Looks like pink lemonade. A little tart, but really good. A lot of people don't know you can make anything from crab apples.

  6. Hi robbi! I love crab apple jelly. Unfortunately, we don't have any here.

  7. I'm going right into the kitchen and start breadmaking. How soon can you be here? Oh, you might bring your toaster too, I'm not too fond of mine. Seriously, what a lovely collection of sweets and savories.
