As planned I made a batch of apple jelly this morning. I didn't remember it being soooo much work. Thank god it is done! It tastes really good and makes for some great Xmas presents...Yes I am already thinking about Xmas....When I had access to a gazillion stores (i.e. When I was working) by this date I had a third of my shopping done. Can you believe that?
On a related subject, while driving back home on route 26, we stopped at a little shack in the mountain in Maine. This little place fills me up with joy and I get misty just thinking about it.The Puzzle mountain bakery bakes pies, cakes,
ookies, jams and jellies. They put them in the two stands with the price on them and when you want some you just put the money in a box nailed to a tree. It amazes me that they have so much faith in people, that they believe people are basically honest and good....Well I bought pickles, I haven't tasted them yet, but I will keep you posted!
