How to make Plum Jam with a cat
Thought you might like to see the new cat at Soggibottom.
Cats every where lately so I thought I would join in.
You will see this little cat again, you have a sneak preview for now.
Tiny guy. 3 and a half inches high.
As for one of the other cats at Soggibottom.
Mew doesn't only sneak Amie's cookies. Catnip mice are at the bottom.
We had a clear out of drooled over toys a few days ago, to get to the good stuff you have to get right in the box. It's always best done when Amie is asleep and not watching.
Mew thought no one was watching as I had my mind on other things in the kitchen.
Making plum jam with plums from our tree. The first year we had 3 plums, the third year, three pots of jam. Still enough plums left over to eat just as they are.
Easy plum jam.
1 lb stoned plums
1lb of sugar
I always add a teaspoon of dried or fresh Ginger as well.
Simmer the fruit in a little water, not too much.
Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
Boil rapidly until set.
I might call this lap quilt Plum jam.
I felt rather guilty a while ago when I joined in Sue's quilt along.
I never made a thing that day. I was busy playing games and posting Alvin and the Chipmunks. So hopefully SUE I have now made up for it.
One ribbon lap quilt coming along.
If you want to join Sue next time I know she would be pleased to see you.
I had a laugh a minute that day, also some great quilts to be seen.
Just not mine on that day.
