Photo of the Day July 14th

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?


  1. Sorry - should have mentioned that if you don't leave the jar tightly closed, it does tend to evaporate :)
    Not to worry - I'm sure I can bring you another jar. And peach and blueberry season are quickly approaching !!!

  2. Sigh... my favourite "jam memory" is of peach jam that my Aunt Kathy made when I was in my teens & early twenties (um, which was just last year, you know). I get the warm-fuzzies whenever I taste peach jam as a result... and would welcome the opportunity to try yours!!!

  3. I doubt that Linda's jam had any time to evaporate unless you take the meaning to be disappear from the jar because it was hastily consumed by a family of black cherry jam lovers. If I were there I would join them and it would "evaporate" that much quicker.
