    It’s been a little while since we had a crock pot recipe, hasn’t it?  It’s OK..don’t panic.  Today is your lucky day.  This is something I never, ever, ventured into.  Jams, jellies, preserves..they are all  nicely stacked in the peanut butter and jelly isle at my local grocery store.  This is where my jelly knowledge has been located and were I was comfortable with it.  But, in my never-ending quest to find recipes for my crock pot..this little gem fell into my lap.
    Oh, my..this stuff is amazing.  What a simple recipe that will have a huge impact on your jelly-jammin life.  Seriously.  You will not want to buy a jar of store-bought ever-again.  We will not, that’s for sure!
    {A side note..I zero knowledge of canning and jelly-making.  I changed the adapted recipe a bit and it worked for me beautifully. So, if you spot an error, please let me know}
    {Edited to Add 6/2/13– My next batch was 1 pound strawberries, 1/2 pound raspberries and 1/2 pound blueberries.  I also subbed 2 cups of the sugar with 2 cups apple sauce…it turned out delicious!}
