Hi Pat. Nobody has been here for a year? Anyway... I made green tomato/serrano/strawberry jam with this recipe and its wonderful. I just finished making watermelon/strawberry jam. We shall see how that turns out. Its so easy unless you make it difficult like i do by using the food mill and a sieve.

Can this recipe do a 5 or 10 minute hot water bath to seal and be shelf stable?
