Interests: Well, clearly my family, cooking, and baking, right? But photography is right up there, too. Because I've been making food and taking pictures since childhood, photography is one of the major strands in the braid. Other strands include reading, writing, listening to all types of music, drawing, designing and making quilts (though it's been years...), eating (kind of goes with the cooking and baking part) camping, fishing, gardening, talking, listening, and playing. There are more, but this will do for now.

Hi Lori, Thanks for your question - I haven't looked at this post in a while, and it was fun to scroll through and look at my kids when they were three years younger! Anyway, we don't use much water at all - maybe an inch at the most in the bottom of the pot, and yes, we cover the pot completely. Enjoy!!

Hi Kath, yes, the same amount should work whether frozen or fresh. Have fun!

Hi Jessica, I have a kitchen scale, so I can measure the weights of the ingredients. Some recipes I use call for weight (especially baking), while others call for teaspoons and cups and so forth.

Hi Devin, Glad you like the eggs. Ive heard that hard cooking eggs in the oven (each egg in the well of a muffin tin) yields eggs that are easier to peel, but I havent tried it myself so I cant say for certain. Not sure what to tell you on the peeling - sometimes I have a hard time peeling them, other times I dont. What kind of food coloring set-up did you use? I cant really help unless I have a few more details....

Maria, I just re-read the post, since it was several years ago, and according to what I wrote, I got 9 jars with pectin, and 7 without. So 28 oz of the non-pectin version.

zgingrich - Make a beluga cake! And think of this - in your daughters eyes it will be the most wonderful cake EVER. And hers is the only opinion that matters, really, isnt it? When my nephew was little, he was a HUGE fan of Thomas the Tank Engine. Obsessed. So I was making him a Thomas cake for his birthday, of course. But I couldnt get the eyes right. (I know...its a claymation train. Not a human.) I scraped icing off the cake-trains face and redid the eyes. Again. And again. And no matter what, they just didnt look like Thomas the Tank Engines eyes. FAILURE!!! But I couldnt do any more to the cake without probably ruining it, so I put the piping bag down and walked away. Or maybe I ran out of royal icing...who knows. Anyway, my nephews birthday party was the next day, and when my sister brought the cake into the festive, balloon-filled dining room and we all - family and friends - sang Happy Birthday, my little nephew looked at the cake and broke my heart into a million pieces with these words: Thats the best Thomas I ever saw! So make a beluga cake. It will be perfect. :)
