Yesterday I surprised myself
by making three jars of blackberry jam.
And where you might ask,
are the seasonally appropriate pictures of
of pine tree felling,
of pudding stirring
of Christmas belling?
Are you trying to mess with my mind?
Will it be meringues and cream tomorrow?
Are you trying to cater more for your Antipodean reader?
Well yes, all of the above because there are six egg whites in there too
but the day before yesterday
I applied Marie Kondo's theories to the freezer food category.
If it didn't spark joy, or leave room for my chicken stock to feel appreciated
out it went.
But then I couldn't bring myself to chuck the defrosted blackberry puree
down the plughole,
so I made jam.
And the jam can be gifts
so we will be back in sync.
