After the Kensington Farmer’s Market on Sunday, I wound up with six flats of strawberries and two of peaches. So it’s been jam, jelly, and fruit butter city here.
And I’m not done! Because you need to cook the fruit in small batches to get it to gel, I’ve been adding various spices: ginger, cardamom, allspice, vanilla to some mixes. Best so far: Strawberry Brandy Clove. And while cooking, it’s great to listen to Koko Taylor, who even has a line in this song about jelly/jam.
