Sunday Morning Jam Session

I feel like I've been neglecting my blog lately, and I'm sorry...but its definitely that time of year! Fabric is coming in and out of the shop at a ridiculous rate, there are social events to attend, food to make, and quilts to finish. The last week vanished before my eyes between being in Hobart for the weekend, then in Queensland Wednesday/Thursday. I promise I've finished all my travelling for the year.

This mornings job was apricot jam; last summer's batch disappeared way too early in the year. So I bought a huge bag of the yummiest fruit and set about turning my kitchen into a super-sticky mess. But so worth it!

I've posted the recipe before, over here; it's the Stephanie Alexander one and I wouldn't use any other. It has never failed me.


Now I'm off to hide the finished product before anyone else gets their hands on it....

I haven't made jam since the great disaster of 2000. It boiled over, I had a free standing gas oven and it disappeared down the sides and back of the oven.

I have never made jam. Dad used to do a plum one because there was a tree outside the kitchen window. He'd get tons of fruit and have a massive session.
Once the pot did end up with burned fruit on the bottom of it. He had forgotten his marbles. He was able to salvage the pot and he never forgot the marbles again. :)
