This is the first summer we've had such an abundance of fruit offered to us and I'm loving it! Especially, now that I'm jam obsessed. It has become a new craft for me! K walked in to the kitchen last night and said " it looks like a chemistry project in here". In fact I have been trying to get the exact science of combining fruit, sugar and pectin! Here is what we've been trying to gobble up:
oh, how I love that blush of pink!
My dear friend Carolyn has a great selection of fruit trees in her yard. Check out these gorgeous fruits we picked!
Flavor Supreme Pluots! These are delicious and the inside is a deep magenta! I had to try very hard not to eat them all before turning it into jam! I haven't tasted it yet but I have a feeling the pluot jam is the best tasting!
Did somebody say white peaches? oh yeah! Peaches are one of my favorite fruits!
Before and after shots of golden plums. Yum! I had to blanch them to peel the skins off before mushing them into jam! I think I'm pretty well stocked as far as jam goes, don't you think?
"When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mounatin too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome."
P.S. A couple of Thanks to Carolyn for the yummy fruits! and Thanks to Lavern for the book of great quotes!
