I learned that my plums should be ripe right about now. I went to check them today. They are definitely ready to be picked and jammed. So I have been making some calls to people that I know have experience and will be making jam this coming week. I am so very excited because this is something I have always wanted to learn. Learning something new is always extreemly invigorating. It is amazing how it gets the blood flowing and makes you feel like a little kid on the first day of school. I have butterflies and feel nervous to make jam from the plums on my tree. It sounds so silly out loud, but I can't help myself.
I did find a pectin free plum jam recipe on a site that I love. I found a great web and blog site,
I am excited to be finding so many treasures along the way as I research different processes I am trying to learn. I also met a fantastic foodie last night that gave me a wonderful pulled pork recipe to try. His salsa site is Carrillosalsa.com. He said his Aztec Chipotle salsa can be found at Corti Bros. downtown and makes a mean pork roast turn delicious. http://www.cortibros.biz/'
Research is such fun!! So I will keep ya'll posted on my jamming adventure.
BTW my wildflower seeds are sprouting...more on that later...just about fell over when I saw those little sprouts this morning. I am amazed at what tickles my fancy.
