    Default PLINK!



    What a sweet sound that is.

    I finally found apricots at a decent enough price to make jam
    (our blossoms and fruit froze on the trees in April, not a fruit
    remained.)

    I just made five 8 oz jars and three 12 oz. Even though I have
    some left from last year's bountiful harvest, I won't be as generous
    about sharing them this year.

    I just opened a jar of pomegranate jelly (made from the fruit!) that my
    daughter's mother-in-law from California gave us. Wow, it is delicious!
    With pomegranates selling for ~$2 each in recent years, I don't think
    I'll be making it any time soon. I've used bottled "pure" juice but the
    flavor is very lacking compared to this jar.

    You just triggered a good memory Gloria. My dear departed Aunt Billy
    used to make pomegranate jelly every year. She passed away in 1973 and I
    haven't had any pom jelly since. She had two little trees in her
    backyard in Vidor, TX and, as she explained, it was a real PITA to make
    the jelly.

    Like you, I'm not paying big bucks for poms nowadays. Wonder if you
    could make the jelly from the bottled pom juice sold in stores? Might be
    a little cheaper that way.

    I *love* that sound too!!!

    Made smooth peach jam for my DIL yesterday. She is *mad* about
    peaches. I'll take it to her next weekend.

    I have done that. Got a ribbon for the jelly at the fair one year
    looking at my spreadsheet, I can't figure out what color the ribbon was,
    though.

    Thanks, next time the local Kroger has a sale on full pom juice I will
    make a stab at making the jelly.
