Summertime Fruit

It is summertime here in Texas. You know what that means don't you?


There are lots of good fruit to eat . . .


And more good fruit to make into yummy jams and jellies. . .


This is a batch of plum jam. Yummmm . . .


It gets a bit steamy when making jam because of the boiling pot but oh how good it will be to eat a little bit of summertime this winter.


The side benefit is that the jars are so pretty when full of jam that I leave them out on the counter for a bit just to enjoy their beauty. I am headed outside right now to see if my peaches are ready. Oh how pretty the peach jam will look on my counter.

TD ~ Oh, that look soooo yummy!
I used to do all this canning & jamming ... it is pretty to look at ... each batch arriving brings such delight to the eye & the snacking time for testing.

Have a lovely summer's eve ~

IN Puercorico, a territory of USA in the Caribbean, most people are not into watermelons.

However they always bring to mind Watermelon Man, the everlasting tune composed by Herbie
Hancock.
