Summer is the time to make use of the abundance of fresh sweet fruits. Eat them fresh or make them into fruit sauce or jam. Making fruit sauce and jam is one thing that I love to do  during Summer. I cannot get enough of them, it’s the time of the year where I can totally forget on using canned fruit filling. Among my favorite are Peach, Strawberry, Blueberry, Mango, Cherry, Apple and Pineapple. Most of my fruit sauce and filling are small batch, but it’s very flexible to double to make a large batch. I do that sometimes specially when the fruit season is close to end. I made large batch of them to keep the Summer extended until Fall. Good thing about it, fruit sauces and filling are cooked in sugar so it could last longer when stored properly.
