Plum Jam and Puppies!

Its puppy time and jam time!  What a busy weekend we had!

We picked some of our plums (the ones we could reach).  We stoned them and soaked them and then cracked all the stones to rescue the kernals.  These we then peeled and skinned and added to the jam (this adds a lovely hint of almond flavour to the jam).

We cooked the jam expertly and WOW!!  We had the BEST jam on our hands almost ever!!  A stunning colour!

Labels were made and stuck on jars and here we have the professional delicious produce!  All home grown except the sugar.

Also home grown are these delightful new arrivals (between July 26th and 27th).
