Do you have a father’s day present yet? No? Well, this could be an option…if…he has a sweet tooth! Even if not, what is better than homemade jam/jelly/marmelade? I am on cloud 9 in jelly heaven!



3 cups of peeled, seeded and chopped oranges (or any other fruit)
2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
1 1/2 cups sugar)
a pinch of salt
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier or Cognac
1 Package Freezer Jam Powder

Crush fruits and add sugar. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Add Freezer Jam Powder slowly and mix for 5 minutes. Let stand for additional 5 minutes.
Boil jars and fill with jam. Then boil again. Done! (For more details follow the instructions on your gelling powder package and your jar package.)


And after you finished making your jam, you can make a jam cake or jam & cheese cookies!





I always get a lot of compliments on my pictures *thanks guys*, so I decided to post ‘Behind the Scenes’ pictures on my Facebook Page. If you haven’t already done so, you can like me on Facebook now ;-)


To decorate the jars, you need following:



– Doilies

– Cupcake liners

Twisted Sugar Twine

– Ribbon


And here are the tags to download:


Download all labels

Only ‘Spread the Love’ labels


I made new labels, download is here!

See you later!

  1. So sweet, both the recipe and the printables. Thank you.I enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog. I hope you’ll stop by Katherines Corner and leave a comment, and maybe even enter the latest giveaway. Hugs!

  2. Thanks so much for the printables! Since I’m a buy-the-darn-stuff-at-the-Farmer’s-Market
    kind of gal and not the make-your-own (and probably poison someone), the “Spread the Love”
    label is perfect!

  3. Thanks for the printables. The jam looks yum and the packaging is lovely too.

  4. These are so AMAZING! makes want to try and make some instead of buying it.

  5. This is delightful! Everything looks delicious! I once made my dad jam for Christmas…may be time for a repeat for Father’s Day!
    Thank you for your kind comment on my ‘chocolate’ coffee table!

  6. Of course clean the jars, but how long to do you cook/and/or process? You use freezer jam powder for freezer jam, but probably want to cook citrus to soften the peel, no? Also, need to tell readers how long to process the jam in a water bath. Might want to check this website for USDA standards on canning food: http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/ Your website is beautiful, but food safety is of paramount importance.

    • No, I don’t want to cook citrus to soften the peel. I followed the instructions on the no cook freezer jam package.

  7. Thank you so much for the tags. I made extra jam this year to give away and now they will look real cool :)

  8. So cute, thank you so much! ♥

  18. Hi,

    I was wondering how you make your printable’s and what type of website that you use.

    Thanks Amanda

  19. So beautiful, Sibylle! I’m going to try making your jam this week. May I leave out the booze, or will it not hold together? Many thanks.

  20. Thanks for the recipes and the free printables. I LOVE the torn page with the piece of tape and 3 images on it too. I have the tape, but would you mind sharing the torn paper? It would be perfect as a timeline cover on fb. THANKS!
