Yesterday in The Kitchen

Raspberries from my sister-in-law.

Dish drainer full.

Jars of fresh raspberry jam.

Evening sun streaming down the stairs. Packet of cucumber seeds at the back door ready to head out to the garden for a second planting.

Lovely day in the kitchen.

Wishing you all a great weekend! See you on Monday..

Oh my. That raspberry jam has me drooling on my keyboard. Wish I had a piece of buttered toast to put it on. Mmm.

Wow- it looks like you got a lot accomplished! I froze my raspberries to do something with later. I could not heat up the house on that particular day. The jam sure turned out pretty!

MMMMMMM.

We mised raspberries. But hoping for blackberry jam. It's the only one I'll eat.

I'm wondering if it's too late for gourds?

Makes me want to come and sit in the kitchen and chat over jam and toast! Lovely. (And I didn't know you could do "second plantings". Yay! It gives me more hope!)

I notice a wooden instrument and steel container in your picture... interestingly, last year I bought beeswax from a local beekeeper and he asked me if I made jam and if I would like to have (the same tool in your photo) Please tell me about how you use it! I have yet to try it but am excited to and even more excited to see you have one too : )
