Jam Book Giveaway!

This is the Big Birthday Week and to celebrate, I'm giving away 3 copies of this terrific ebook all about making jam with low sugar pectin.

You might recognize it.  I wrote it myself!  [It's a really good book!]

It's a collection of the jam recipes [and marmalade recipes, and sauce recipes and marinade recipes and glaze recipes...] from the first couple of years of the blog.  Plus, there are sections on troubleshooting runny jam to firm it up, lists of high pectin and low pectin fruit, a whole section on why low-sugar pectin is my pectin of choice [including comparisons of different brands of pectin, etc.], and even a section on how to get that sugar burn off your nice Le Creuset pot.

It's an ebook - 7.7M interactive PDF file, which means you can click on stuff in the Table of Contents and Index and go right to that page in the book.   Handy!!   Plus, you can add your own bookmarks to make it even easier to zip around to your favorite recipes.

You can access the book in Adobe, iBook, and Kindle.  It works best in Adobe and iBook, so you can use it on your phone, or ipad, or laptop, or desktop computers. [Kindle lets you read PDFs, but they are not interactive.]

I know you'll want to look inside so take a look at the preview!  Check out that Table of Contents and then skim on over to the Tips list in the Index.    You need this book. 

To win a copy of A Simple Jar of Jam, leave a comment on the blog or facebook, or Google +, or Twitter telling me what your favorite kind of jam is. 

Giveaway ends at midnight EDT on Sunday, July 21, 2013.   Watch the blog next week to claim your prize.  I'll email you the file as soon as I get your email address.


  1. for the first time in a long time I have enough wine berries and blueberries to do more than eat. I like the idea of low sugar pectin so yes I do need this book! The berries are waiting in the freezer!

  2. What I like is JAM! I usually buy it at the grocery store so my choices are limited, but I am willing to try any fruit or berry jam at least once. I know first hand that the stuff you make is fantastic, so of course I would love to have your recipes. I WANT to be you, lol.

  3. You're right, I do need this book! My favorite jam that I make is Apricot-Pineapple. But I'd love to try many more.

  4. Blackberry for sure...seedless or seeded doesn't matter!

  5. That's a toughie... I'm always discovering a new favorite. But I was pleasantly surprised by a watermelon jam not too long ago; I think I put fresh ginger in there too and it was terrific. (But after a year the flavor was not as strong.)

  6. As I admire your blog postings and have found your yarn and dyeing efforts highly accurate and informed, I expect your journey into jamming will be as inspiring and certainly worth the enormous cost of buying all the pots, pans, bottles and other equipment, to embark on that journey with win it for free .... double the incentive... :-)!

  7. Hi, I just found your site & my favorite jam is blueberry! I'd love to win a copy of your book!

    1. Oh, I'm your newest follower! Please stop by when you have a moment. I love company & new friends are always welcome!

  8. I feel a little embarrassed saying that my favorite jam is plain, old strawberry, but my favorite jam? Plain old strawberry.

  9. Our favorite jam is also Strawberry! Seems like it's a lot of people's favorite. Home made strawberry jam - tastes like summer in the middle of a cold winter. Served with butter on english muffins, yum! Would love to win a copy of your e-book!

  10. Strawberry or wild black raspberry from Idaho.

  11. I just found your blog and is about to read my way through it. Wonderful!

    My favourite jam is cloudberry jam. Alas, they don't grow around here...
