COOK’S NOTES

  • I am not sure why this is called “butter” when it’s really more of a “jam” type recipe – maybe this is what her generation or location called jam.
  • She doesn’t notate whether this is for canning or how to store this large amount of food. What are  your thoughts to storage?

Forgot to add butters and jams usually do not used pectin. Be it natural pectin or just “thickeners”.

This can be water bathed and preserved. I did this with cotton candy grapes this year. I’m much better at “butters” which pretty much are the whole fruit cooked to thick “butter” consistency. Jelly is usually juice of fruit and jam is thick with some pieces of fruit but it’s thicker than jelly. You can see thru jelly - not jam or butter. I came here to look for old canning recipes. Was hoping you had a category for canning.

We do have a category for canning but at this time it only has a few recipes. We are adding 100s of recipes each week so stay tuned. https://vintagerecipeproject.com/canning-recipes/
