Raspberry season is not complete until raspberry-jalapeno jam has been made. Well, that and this adult raspberry cordial. Then, and only then, can the season end.

I’m a huge fan in using alcohol to preserving foods. Alcohol creates a superb flavor which often leaves you wanting more. For example, home canned Bourbon peaches. This preserved item contains a hint sweet bourbon with summertime peaches.

As a matter of fact, Lola made this kid friendly very independently without my assistance.
