I am inspired or challenged by Celia who writes a widely read blog Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, see my link to her site on the side of my blog, listed under Blogroll.My ipod and ipad, can’t live without them. Love the ipad for quick cross referencing a recipe I haven’t cooked before.In my kitchen now is a supply of red cherry plums and yellow cherry plums some of which have been cooked into a smooth conserve.I am up to my armpits in jam making. I have not been a jam maker but it seems like the sensible thing to take up in Tasmania. Hard to resist the abundance of stone fruit Tasmania produces this time of year. The plums came from a friend’s house in St Helens so I sent her some jam and homemade jam drops.Here they are, before they went into the oven, never made them before but thought it worth the effort with my own jam.
Sushi box made of Huon Pine, from Artisan Gallery in Robigana, that is north of Launceston – it stays on the bench, love looking at it. My battered kitchen mitt of a pair of Tasmanian blue wren birds. All the tourist shops here sell these. And a new apron with more birds given to me by my sister on her recent visit. I love it but it might stay on the hook and I will wear the navy one whilst making red plum jam. Thanks Celia when I am thinking I am too busy to write a blog post you come along and inspire me.
