Jams are a great way to preserve those fresh Summer tastes. Photo by Gabriel Christus/Aurora Sentinel

We decided to make jam. Because nothing allows you to capture the flavor of summer sun, sumptuous fruit and even the smell of a scorching summer day like a homemade jar of jam, jelly or preserves. It’s magic. On winter’s nastiest day, one bite of summer’s fruit preserves magically breaks even the coldest spell.

Fish tacos are an excellent summertime favorite to take with us into colder weather. I love using Alaska cod because not only is it full of healthy fats (which feed my brain, heart and make me feel full), but it’s available frozen year-round. And these packets do great with frozen fish — no need to thaw before making. Happy fall indeed.
