Jammin’ with Jaime: Watermelon Jalapeño Jelly Recipe

Watermelon Jalapeño Jam Recipe
I think y’all may have noticed on facebook and instagram (@prudentjaime) that I have become obsessed with jam and jelly making this summer. Do you know the diff between jam and jelly? Jelly is made with fruit juice, while jam is made with whole fruit. The more you know…

Watermelon Jalapeño Jelly Recipe
Today we are making Watermelon Jalapeño Jelly. I adore watermelon (who doesn’t?), and have had a great crop of jalapeños in my backyard farm this season. I thought, what if I put them together and made a jelly? I asked my friend Erin what she thought of this idea, and she wondered what one might eat watermelon jalapeño jelly with? I thought this was a decent question so I asked Jacinda. Her answer was “a spoon.” Ha.

So I went to Texas to visit her, my suitcase half filled with various jams and jellies, and we experimented. This turned out to be my very favorite of all the jams and jellies I made this year! With it’s fresh-summer-taste and spicy bite, it was perfect on meat! So make some watermelon jalapeño jelly and serve it with barbecued meats or on a sandwich. And of course you could always pour it over some cream cheese and eat with crackers. Or spoons.

DIY Clouds and Stars Card

The other day I had to send out thank you cards and wasn’t feeling up to heading to the store to buy some, so I did what any logical person would do and made some of my own. I wanted to make a card that would feel totally unique, could be used for pretty much any occasion, and would make me smile if I pulled it out of an envelope – and thus the DIY Clouds and Stars Card was born. Once I figured out my design I was able to make a handful of them in an afternoon. Next time I think I’m going to use this marbling technique for the clouds, what do you think?

Check out the tutorial for the DIY Clouds and Stars Card after the jump…

Silhouette Cameo giveawayLast week Jaime came to town to work on our book but first we whipped my studio into shape with an organization marathon. That is a true friend, am I right? Basically all she left for me to do was to label all of my newly sorted bins. Of course I grabbed my Silhouette Cameo for an easy and stylish solution. If only my Silhouette could fold fabric.
