Here is the fig preserves/jam. These are like small gift jars.
Some go in the freezer whole to cook later.
I picked , washed, peeled, chopped and soaked, cooked about half a bushel for the pear preserves/jam.
Will pick again for the whole ones will can in pineapple juice.
i heard about this way from Laurie. Do instead of the simple syrup.
So will give a go!
Used to dry apples, pear, peaches but my dehydrator died many moons ago and never replaced it.
Dried fruit is good in fried pies!!!
After I clean up the pears mess here in a bit will go up to Aunt Dot’s to pick Concord Grapes.
Will just cook them and save juice to make jelly later.
Will take some pics of the vines while up there.
Oh love to sit here and hear those lids pop!!!
Means the yummy pear jam jars are sealed!
Yes I am easily amused!!;-)
I had to make a run to town yesterday so while there ran into the thrift next to the grocery I went to.
Got these Vintage Textile Soak packages for 99 cents!!!
A teapot!! Will show on a Tea Tuesday Post!!
A great cabinet with shelf inside for my sewing room!! Matches my other shuttered cabs.
Will paint cream.
Think my sewing room here is going country cottage.. ha!!
Also a nice shelf with brass ends and nice hooks. Will paint wood black .
Need to replace one in the kitchen.
It is over a heating unit and sort of got warped…more than me so off it will go!! Ha!!
Later today I will run(drive) to PO to mail off the Giveaway Packages.
Be on the lookout sweet ladies!!!
I hope to finish sewing up the linings with zipper pockets
