Scene number 1. I call it "Blackberry jam". Did I make it myself I hear you ask? Of course I did, I take my young fogey status very seriously you know. When I'm not sewin' or knittin' or crochetin' I'm bakin' and cookin' and preservin'. Here's my recipe: 500 g blackberrries, 2 c sugar, juice of 1 lemon. Cook up the blackberries till they're juicy, use a masher if you like. Add the sugar and lemon juice and bring quickly to the boil. Boil rapidly for 5-8 minutes, checking the set from 5 minutes onwards. Remove from the heat, stir every few minutes for the next 10 minutes while it cools a little (this makes the seeds evenly distributed). Pour into hot jars and seal. Makes 2 x 500 g jars.
Scene number 2. My new measuring cups. Oooooh they're so cute I just wanna measure everything.
Scene number 3. This is how a 2-year-old eats an apple. In't it cute?
