Have a unique jelly recipe? Link it in the comments below!

Corn Cob Jelly – Maybe the most unique Jelly I’ve made or even tried to date. I love this jelly,  it has an almost honey-like flavor to it, buttery and sweet.

Banana Jam

Banana Jam – We’ve made something similar to this recipe, but definitely not exact. It is coming soon, but in the meantime, this recipe looks intriguing and we are definitely interested in trying it.

Dandelion Jelly

Dandelion Jelly – I am definitely curious about this one. And it’s not like Dandelions aren’t in abundance starting about now and continuing on all summer long. I know what I’m trying.

Watermelon Jelly

Watermelon Jelly – A sweet reminder of summer. I love this Jelly and it make’s an awesome syrup for pancakes too.

Honeysuckle Jelly

Honeysuckle Jelly – This Honeysuckle jelly is absolutely amazing. It’s like the taste of childhood summers in a jar!

Hot Pepper Jelly

Hot Pepper Jelly – Not only do I love the idea of this jelly from Averie Cooks, but I absolutely love how gorgeous it is. This would make such a beautiful gift at holiday time, but I’ll be trying this one out after my peppers grow.

Blood Orange Marmalade

Blood Orange Marmalade – This was one of my favorites I have tried from the Put ‘Em Up Cookbooks. SO good! Perfect with toast, bagels or even as a marinade for meats.

pineapple jelly

Pineapple Jelly – Easily one of my very favorite fruits, I wonder why I have never tried this recipe from Colleen’s Recipes or any other for that matter. Timeto change that and maybe even play a bit with the flavor profile beyond the simple pinapple.


Blueberry Lemon Basil Jam – This is a favorite in our house. The flavors compliment one another so well. Definitely worth making and enjoying!

Pumpkin Jam

Pumpkin Jam – This pumpkin jam from My Island Bistro Kitchen is similar to one I tried this Fall. We absolutely loved it, but I want to change it up a little and make something that literally tastes like Fall. Regardless this is awesome and her recipe is pretty simple, a good one for sure!
