A peek in my daily life and the things I like to do.
18 August 2011
This morning DH and I picked the gooseberries from the two bushes we have in our garden.
About 6kg. wonderful sweet berries in spite of the bad,wet, cold summer we have here.
With every 1750 grams of berries I added 250 grams of soaked dried apricots and 2 kg. sugar.
(I smash the apricots with the blender before I start cooking the jam.)
The apricots give this jam a lift and an unexpected nice taste.
After a day hard work I had 17 and a half jar of fine jam.
Very good for breakfast on a slice of home baked bread :)
My shelf in the cellar cupboard starts looking nice with the new supply of homemade jam!
