Today I am making jam and don't try to talk me out of it!
I know it's going to take all day. I know it's going to be hot and messy and in the end I'll probably have only a dozen little jars of jam and a sticky kitchen floor! Wish you were here Beth!
But what else was I going to do today? Besides paint, plant, unpack and pick up!
Besides plums are all over my backyard!
Thats right! I've got one fruitful little plum tree which provided blooms at Jenny and Clint's March wedding, survived a late freeze, gave Boot's all the 'green plums' she could eat and now lot's of ripe ones for me to make jam!
Thank you little tree. You have definitely earned your keep!
I'm also making bread today.
Don't you wish you could be in my kitchen this afternoon when warm jam meets hot bread....I'm just saying!
In case you prefer biscuits with you jam, I just posted a recipe for Cream Biscuits on my recipe blog, Coachette's Kitchen. I made them last night for the first time. They were quick and delicious!
In closing I want to thank Rachel Lake for letting me borrow the image above. It is befitting! And at the end of the day, I'll take a picture of me and my jam!
