Well, this week's recipe for Sweet Melissa Sundays just made me so happy to have started this group. I must admit, sometimes life gets way to hectic and I do get a tad stressed about finding time to keep up with my baking blogging groups. But it is soooo worth it, and this week's recipe of Strawberry Grapefruit Preserves chosen by the marvelous Margot of Effort to Deliciousness is the perfect example. This is my first full-fledged preserve experience and it won't be my last. This was simple to make, made the house smell delicious and was out of this world. I swear, the best darn preserves I have tasted (I may be a tad biased, I'll admit). It is just the right amount of sweet and tart - and relies upon apples for the pectin so no artificial geletin (my Jewish grandparents - may they rest in peace - would be pleased). I HIGHLY recommend making this - and if you don't and you happen to see me around christmas time, well, then you may just be getting your own jar!
