My friend Linda very kindly dropped by this morning and brought me two jars of her home-made black cherry jam. Last week she walked me through her jam-making routine, and despite her insistence that "it's easy!" it actually seems like a pretty complex process... but I can certainly testify that the results are fantastic! While Chris, Sophie and I all enjoyed toast with jam this afternoon, I can't understand how the first jar is already half-empty. There must have been a defect in the jar that's allowing some of the jam to escape... I should probably report back to Linda and ask her for another jar, shouldn't I?
