We Be Jammin'



This is what I did today*... picked roses from my garden and made plum jam... with plums picked from the trees in my garden.

That's the first time I've ever made jam, so I'm feeling quite chuffed with myself. Mind you, the clever folks at CSR have made it dead simple... they have a "jam setting sugar" which you just mix into mushed up fruit and boil. None of this adding pectin or other things I've never heard of... just two ingredients, boil the bejeezus out of it and bottle. Brilliant.

So I guess that also counts as one of my 52 new things to try... and the week has only just begun. What a cracking start I've made.

* I also mopped the kitchen floor, did four loads of laundry, put together the plastic shoe boxes I bought on the weekend and sorted my shoes into them, chatted to Bestie P for an hour and rang my mum. Not a bad effort really.
