While I was gone to Washington State, my dear sweet hubby picked the plums from our tree, sent a bunch through the juicer and made the juice into jelly. The jars of sweetness look like jewelry.
When DH was teaching at the university he had summer breaks from work. I didn't in my job. With a little instruction from me, he took over the task of making jams and jellies. He has become quite skilled at the job don't you think?
