Quick Tip - Try Something New

A couple of weeks ago I found a recipe for making jam without added pectin. I had just gotten some apricots and wanted to make jam with them since I love apricot jam.

Since I have always wanted to try making it without added pectin, I decided, why not?

It was relatively easy. The recipe was easy to follow, not a whole lot to do, just a lot of cooking. I learned about and was able to try 3 different "gel tests" to see if the jam would set.

I'm glad I decided to venture out and try something new.

In the end I ended up with 3 batches of jam that vary in consistency and color, and a new skill.
What have you learned by trying something new?
