This Wednesday is not wordless. Oh well.
Two weeks ago we made pickles. This past weekend the girls and I made jam. On the left is peach jam with cherry brandy. On the right is plum cardamom.
The cherry brandy was not the good stuff. It was literally the dregs of a bottle of cheap brandy that tasted like cough syrup and had been left behind by the previous owners when we bought our first house in 2006.
But it adds a decent, not overwhelming. amount of cherry to the peach jam. And I can finally recycle the bottle. Phew.
The plum cardamom is a redo of the jam I made on a whim a few years back. Sadly I didn’t have any dried orange zest this time. So it’s not quite as good. But it’s still really tasty. It’s just blue ribbon jam and not best of show jam.
Also? The date 9/9/18 is really fun to write over and over.
