Plapple Jam4:40 pm
"It's a happy life, but someone is missing. It's a happy life, and someone is missing."
....Elizabeth McCracken, An Exact Replica Of a Figment Of My Imagination.
Most days I guess this is just how it is, today was one of those days. One of those busy days, with too much to do, too much to think about and a deadline to keep, but I still decided to make jam, having never made it before, but reluctant to throw out perfectly good (if a little past it's best) fruit that no one was willing to eat.
I chucked some chopped plums and apples into a pan.
Added rather a lot of sugar.
Left it bubbling away.
And ta da!! Jam!
Angus named it Plapple Jam (Plum and Apple), and the children each made a label.
It was loud, and busy, and chaotic, and fun, ....and she was missing x
