In the last few weeks I've made my own english muffins, english muffin bread, and ricotta cheese. I also made the pop tarts pictured on the cover.
Now, I've never been much of a pop tart fan, but these little gems are delicious. I think I'd be committing copyright infringement if I printed the actual recipe but I will show some pictures of my process.
I've made these three times now and they get eaten so fast they never last to the next day. I took one batch to a Favorite Things Party last week and the ladies loved them.
I used my own homemade freezer jam for the filling and I will give you that recipe. It's really good. Honestly, it tastes like fresh strawberries.
Strawberry Freezer Jam
2 1/2 C. Pureed Fresh Strawberries (You can use any fruit you like)
4 C. Sugar
Combine together and let stand for 10 minutes.
1 C. Water
1 Pkg. Pectin
Bring water to a boil. Add pectin and let boil for 1 full minute. Add pectin mixture to fruit mixture and stir until it is no longer foamy; about 3 minutes. Ladle warm mixture into freezer containers and let cool until fully set. Freeze until ready to use.
Lastly, and not to toot my own horn, but I got a nice little write up in the local paper. It has been my privilege to head up the charity committee of the guild I belong to. I have to say though that while the article focused on me, the whole guild deserves to be recognized. Without the help of all the ladies in the group, the work would never get done.
