Remember me saying that canning season wasn't over for me, just yet?
|Mmmm... flavours of the season, ready for the months ahead! Peach Jam, Plum Jam and Pear Butter... all that's missing from my line-up, is the Grape Jelly (jars were still hot, so no photos ;o).|
I couldn't resist the urge to try my hand at more jam making, knowing that I can make it without sugar (seriously... love Pomona's Pectin!), so I brought home 80lbs. of fruit on the weekend to fill some jars. I worked a couple of days with my hubby at the beginning of the week, so jamming started mid-week and I finished up today. Whew.
My sons have been hovering around the kitchen, lured in by the scent of jam. With no bread on hand, they thought my jam making to be bordering on cruelty (all that temptation and nothing to spread it onto... lol ;o). Tonite after completing the final batch of Grape jelly, I made some bread. Happy, eager faces gathererd round the table, bread slices in their hands, ready to start sampling my week's worth of jam making. Everything received two thumbs up... and two loaves of bread simply vanished. ;o) I call my "jamming" a success. LOL
So all my time in the kitchen this week, meant that I fell behind in my "hopping"... Today was the final day of the Dots on Dots Blog Hop. If, like me, you're playing catch-up, there's extra incentive for you to do so over the weekend... but you need to visit these talented ladies to find out why...;o)
