connecting with the past..

everything ripens at once...

i have been cooking all weekend.....

stewed plums...plum sauce...pickled plums...plum conserve....

then of course the tomatoes are ripening faster than we can eat them....chutney this week and hopefully tomato and passionfruit jam next week....
and because this is so delicious some more limoncello.....
i felt like my granny all weekend...

she loved preserving, she always produced a jar of something delicious to share....i used her favourite receipes that were given to her by her mother....

i love that the generations still remain connected through old hand written receipes...tried and true...simple...they never fail me.....

now i have to label and find a home for all this in the pantry....

My grandmother canned everything, including plums. I've not canned, but my baking almost always includes her recipes. And, your photos are gorgeous.

wow. it's exhausting all that conserving, isn't it?! but so worth it.
it reminds me of my grandmother, too. she always had conserved fruits and handpicked blackberry jam, etc. yum.
