  1. Wow that looks so good! I haven’t made carrot cake jam in a while! I think I have the same recipe! I love it as well. Have you tried it on vanilla ice cream yet? You won’t believe how good that is!

    • WOW, never even thought about trying it on ice cream! I MUST do that now! hahahaha I was thinking about putting it into wonton wrappers…. just a little spoonful, rolling them up and frying them in a pan. sprinkling them with cinnamon sugar or some powdered sugar. i bet it would be good. 😀

      • Wow I love your idea about the won tons! That sounds great. I do think I will have to try that as well! I hope you had a great holiday!

  2. Just made this and its really yummy. It has a huge cinnamon flavor in it. Its prossecing in its WB as we speak and i can’t wait to taste it chilled and on some plain toast or even some cinnamon raisin bread! TFS!

  3. I just made this and omgeez it so good. I’m taking some to my sons teacher tomorrow and would like to know what type of crackers to send so she can taste it. I’m making more for Christmas presents.

  4. I love this recipe and look forward to trying it. I am in Canada and only have the pectin in boxes. Is your 6 tablespoons equal to 1 box?
