I love that my last post was titled “No, I Didn’t Die.” And then I disappear. For about three weeks.
So maybe I didn’t die. But *apparently* I was abducted.
By whom or what I HAVE NO CLUE.
So today I canned plum jam, made a crisp, marinated a roast for dinner, made a pumpkin spice latte knock-off, and…
I don’t know. 🙂
Did you know that peeling plums will turn your fingers brown? At least it turned my fingers brown.
And I spent something like two and a half hours peeling little plums that were being so stubborn. They didn’t want let go of their skins. And I blanched the things!
So, here’s where it all starts.
(Listening to a song, and it just mentioned snow. And it made me get excited. Can’t wait till it snows!)
Mashed plums. That turned brown because I was going slow. (Welcome to my life.)
So after mashing them and measuring them, I dumped them in a pan and mixed in the calcium water, pectin, and sugar (that’s minus a few steps).
Next I filled some jars.
And then canned them.
Hey look! A pile of pits!
Then I still had about a cup and a half of plum smash goo. So I had to do something with it.
So I turned to what is becoming my favorite way to use up miscellaneous fruit: a crisp.
And I threw together a plum apple blueberry crisp. No one’s had any yet. So I have no idea how good it is. Or how good the plum jam is, because no one’s had any, because I canned all of it. Otherwise it would have been tried.
Back to the crisp.
And then I had to clean the kitchen.
But actually, I started cleaning the kitchen, then started dinner, played piano (not necessarily in that order), and cleaned up more.
But I also interrupted the cleaning to make a pumpkin spice latte.
Boy was it good!
(Note: I don’t necessarily know this website. Not vouching for everything on it, and not even everything on this page. Just love this recipe.)
It was SO GOOD!
I’m so excited – I’ll hopefully be posting an exciting (for me!) post tomorrow. So check back tomorrow to see it! Oh, and you may find a hint in this post! (And if you already know, don’t give it away!)
