Ball FreshTECH Jam and Jelly maker reviewed.
Wow, what a great little appliance this thing is. I made 8 1/2 pints of Strawberry Jam and 6 4 oz jars of Pepper Jelly today. After you get the fruit prepped it is just 21 minutes until the jam is ready to go in the hot water bath for processing. 10 minutes in there at a low boil, turn off the flame, sit 5 minutes in the hot water, remove the jars and wait for the anticipated ping to sound. That sound of course signals that your jars have sealed. They all pinged almost immediately much to my delight. So here are some pictures...this first one shows the fruit in the Jam and Jelly maker as it is being cooked. It looks like it going really fast but it was not...no fruit was hurled into space while I had the lid off. ;-)
