I had a fun afternoon of bring-your-own-fruit for jam-making with some good friends. Plums, peaches, blackerries, and kiwi were on the menu. We had a nice little assembly line going. Z. became an expert at dipping her finger into boiling water and making sure the rim of the jar was clean. A. was all proficiency at tong handling. I was the official ladler. Sigh. Such domesticity. I can't wait to do it again. My wheels are rolling--soups, salsa, lemon curd....mmmmmm.
