Well...I got home later than expected last night from my birthday dinner, so I didn't seal and address my package so it can't go out today. But it will definitely be in the mail by Saturday at the latest. I want to make sure it's delivered before I leave for vacation so I can hear how my pal likes it.

LOL, I like trying new jams and jellies. Not sure if I am addicted, but I'm sure you will see this exchange again.
Maybe in Sept. or Oct. when the other fall fruits come out-when would that be for everyone? And what type of fruits/jams/jellies would you find in your area?

Bobbi :banana:

Yes it was...but I didn't get home until after 9:30 last night. I did open it before I went to bed.

From Bobbi we got the following - made in Ohio:

blackberry jam
peach jam
apple butter
apple nut bread mix (I'll have to wait until after this heat wave before I turn on the oven to bake this - but I may take it to NJ for our vacation.)
banana taffy
strawberry taffy.

I'll be taking the taffy with me when we head to NJ on Friday and I may take one of the jams with me, although I haven't decided which. I can't wait to try these. I've never had peach - and I won't have to share with hubby since he doesn't really like peach. :)

Thank you Bobbi!!

Joe rec'd his package - thanks mommytotwo!

He rec'd a jar of guava jelly & a jar of papaya-pineapple jelly (yummy) also a pretty mug and a bag of 'ruff n' ready cookies.

Our packages are a bit delayed due to some unexpected dental surgery Joe had last week, I am very sorry to our exchange people.

You are welcomed!!I'm so happy that you got them before your vacation, I remembered you mentioning that you were going. Didn't know you were going to NJ, do you like Salt Water Taffy? We like different sorts, from Wildwood, Douglas Fudge and James'.

And, yes, this heat wave is something, not good. I'm only good for sitting at home and being on the Disboards! :goodvibes

I do like taffy, although it's been a while since I've had any. I need to remember to suck on it and not try to chew it or it will irritate my back teeth with the fillings. Don't need to be pulling any of those out.

We're heading to Seaside Park. IL's rented a place down there for this week and next. They go down just about every summer, although I've never really been. (The hour we spent the weekend of my sister's first wedding doesn't count...especially since it was so long ago.)

And here's a little more irony for you...when my husband told me there was a package from Dayton, OH, I was a little confused at first because my sister used to live out in Fairborn (WPAFB). But then I realized it must be my DIS Jam!

WPAB and the Air Force Museum are the only reasons that many people recognize Dayton Ohio! DH and I met on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights on June 10th, 1966! I was down the shore for my sorority's Beach Week.

We are both partial to Maruca's Pizza that's on the boardwalk there.

I hope you have wonderful beach weather.

It was from kelleigh1-Raquel. In my box, there was-
*Boston gummy lobsters
*Pumpkin butter-interesting, I have never seen this before.
*Cranberry preserves-I am going to try this one tonight.
*3 postcards-one of Boston, a postcard that has the recipe for New England clam chower, and another postcard with the recipe for Boston baked beans.

Thank you very much Raquel.
Do you have any suggestions on what to use the pumpkin butter and cranberry preserves on?

The cranberry could be used just as any of your regular jams or jellies, but also try it on a turkey sandwich.

The pumpkin butter, honestly, I've never tried, but I'm planning on buying a jar for myself. I never knew where to buy it before, but I love pumpkin pie, so I know I'll enjoy it. I think Roxy gave you some good suggestions. Also, I'd probably try it on waffles. Seems like a good alternative to syrup.

If I thought it would ship well, I'd send you a pumpkin pie when I make them at Thanksgiving.

A pumpkin pie-yum. I don't think it would arrive here in an edible condition, but that is sweet of you.
A turkey sandwich with the cranberry jelly sounds yummy.

I *think* one of them reached its new home. I received a package from Lincoln NE today. Only a last name on the return address and no note.

In it was a jar of blueberry jam, a jar of strawberry jam and a jar of apple butter. I also received some Disney collage stickers which my 7yo tried to steal! I cannot wait to try the new flavors. I have tried blueberry syrup before (and loved it), but not blueberry jam. It should be yummy! Strawberry is always a hit in this house! And i actually use apple butter in cooking all the time, but silly me, I never thought to just eat it like jelly!!

Thanks for my great treats!!

Yes that was me. The note is in the mail. I had one ready for your package, but forgot to place it into the package before sealing it up. If you look closely, you might find that I left the price tags on also.......oh well. I hope the note is close behind, I mailed it the same day.....mmmmm who knows.......

Oh yes, every year we go to the north GA Mountains, about a 45 min to an hour drive from home, to the pumpkin patch farm and to the orchards, they make pumpkin pie, jam, jelly, candy apple, apple cider, and much more.

This is their site...

She had sent me-
*Blackberry Jelly and Strawberry Jam that are made by a lady in her town.
*Pineapple fruit spread which is actually made in Mexico-this looks like it would be good as an ice cream topping as well.
*Mini jars of Knott's Berry Farm-raspberry, grape, and two honey jars-these are really cute travel size jars.
*2 types of Mexican treats that she had enjoyed as a child-
Pan tostado, toasted bread, and Gamesa cookies-I have never seen these here, but will try the jams on the toast as a snack today.

Thank you very much Roxy for all the goodies.

I'll hopefully be able to join in the fall one. Although the flavors are probably about the same since cranberry and pumpkin harvest happen in the fall. I could possibly go with an all cranberry exchange that time around though since they mix the cranberry with all kinds of other fruits to make jellies, spreads, syrup...just about anything. And if I see the salsa guy again with the cranberry salsa, I'd have to get some of that too.

MMmmmmmm!!!

The note is in the mail.

The note FINALLY arrived today! I saw the back of it first, and I knew it had to be your note. The Mickey sticker gave it away! Thanks.

As far as the strange mail around here, monsoon rains have been making a mess of things. My mom has a package on the way too me that has been delayed for 4 days now due to monsoon issues. Maybe that happened to my outgoing package too. And that is probably why my package and note arrived several days apart depsite being sent on the same day.

Hopefully we hear from my recipient soon!

Yes it was...but I didn't get home until after 9:30 last night. I did open it before I went to bed.

From Bobbi we got the following - made in Ohio:

blackberry jam
peach jam
apple butter
apple nut bread mix (I'll have to wait until after this heat wave before I turn on the oven to bake this - but I may take it to NJ for our vacation.)
banana taffy
strawberry taffy.

I'll be taking the taffy with me when we head to NJ on Friday and I may take one of the jams with me, although I haven't decided which. I can't wait to try these. I've never had peach - and I won't have to share with hubby since he doesn't really like peach. :)

Thank you Bobbi!!

You're so welcome, and I forgot my elf note sorry. :blush:

The blackberry jelly is made by a lady here in my town, she is a sweet lady and her birthday is this weekend, she's turning 85, her jams and jelly are great.
The other too (pineapple and strawberry) are made in Mexico but I got them here in a latin store, also the bread and snack, they remind me of my childhood.
I hope you enjoy it.

Just wanted to let everyone know, Yesterday went I arrived home after work, there was a note in my mail box letting me know I had a package at my neighbor's house. So after hours and hours of waiting for him to arrive home, I was extremely happy to see the jam/jelly package was there!!

I want to say thank you to jwsqrdplus2 for the great package!!!

DD was standing over me as I unwrapped every item and then took off with the taffy!! I still have no idea what she did with it.


I recieved:

Saguaro Honey
Desert Sunrise Marmalade
Margarita Marmalade
Prickly Pear Cactus Jelly
and
A bag of red taffy.

I would like to be able to tell everyone what it is, but DD ran off with it last night and never saw the label. Hopefully I will find it today after school and try a piece.

Again I want to say Thank You to jwsqrdplus2 for the wonderful package.

I've enjoyed the Blackberry Jam and the toast. It's nice to be able to think of Disboard friends when having breakfast. The lady sounds like a nice person, and her label is so true..."if God is for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31! Yes indeed!
