In France, our hostess always had home made jam. In the past I've thought it was too much trouble, but I really enjoyed these. So this week I've been making jam. I've made 1) Apricot, 2) Peach, 3) Peach-Raspberry, 4) Plum-Sour Cherry, 5) Fruits Rouges (Raspberries, Sour Cherries, and Strawberries).
And the little leftover amounts that didn't fit into the jars, the COG and I have been enjoying on home made bread.
I find it amazing and amusing that an old feminist like myself is so happy these days pottering around the house, making bread and jam and dinner for the COG. Life is funny. Whatever your polemic of choice, it's important to remember, sometimes, to be humble about it.
