I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Root Beer Jelly

This root beer jelly makes a nice glaze for pork tenderloin or try a PB and RBJ (peanut butter and root beer jelly) sandwich! It's also great on your morning toast! 

1 - 900g pkg Lantic & Rogers Jam and Jelly mix
750 ml (3 cups) root beer
50 ml (3 1/2 tbsps) lemon juice (you can use bottled)
First sterilize the jars and tops that you will be using.
Then add all the ingredients to a large pot. Make sure the pot is large enough. I started out with a medium to large pot and had to transfer the mix out to a large pot as the mixture expands when heated. 
Bring everything to a boil and keep boiling for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat then stir and skim off foam for 5 minutes to achieve a nice clear jelly.
Ladle into sterilized jars leaving 1/4" head space, clean the rims if needed, then seal.
Finally, process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
Check after 24 hours to make sure all the jars are properly sealed. The center of the lid should be indented. If it pops up the seal didn't take. You can try processing again or just refrigerate any jars that didn't seal.
Makes 10 - 118ml (4 oz) jars
Who knew jelly could be made from soft drinks (soda, pop)! Maybe I'll give cream soda or cherry cola a try.
A little "candy for your toast"!
