kate5kiwis: we're jammin'


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

we're jammin'

it seems to me that the most therapeutic thing to do after a day at the chalkface is to stir a big saucepan full of delicious sweetness:
there's three and a half cups of pure white and deadly sugar sunshine in that there jam jar. and seven hundred grams of plummy goodness. or it could be plummy rockness. i can't tell just yet. but it looks pretty gorgeous for my first attempt, yes?
no idea what the foamy stuff is, and am hoping all that condensation on the side of the jar does a disappearing act. but the top of the jar is indented, so i get super jammy points, right there. i'm off to do the ironing now. pffft X

Scum - that's what we call the frothy stuff. I try to scoop it off the top of the jam then the family fight over it;-)
