    There is a fruit wine maker in Astoria, OR who does exactly what you are proposing. He is quite
    proud that there is no added water, sugar, fillers, flavors, etc. He also says that he has a
    hard time g...

    Last weekend, I was rummaging though the freezer and came across some red bell peppers and some
    peaches my mother processed. I thought, "They sure do make a great jam together, I wonder how

    bit.The Joy of...
