More Summer Jam
The recipe used is from the Certo packet; I improvised on the Bartlett Pear jam recipe and used a medley of fruit to make the 4 cups of prepared fruit called for. I must caution you about it being too sweet (the lemon zest helps, but it has a baby food sweet taste to it!). I would cut back on the sugar by at least 1 cup and give it another go. I do like the flavour of banana in the recipe and it would make a nice topping for many cakes! This experiment was a success.
This is a picture of largest parsley plant I have ever seen, never mind owned!
I think my other herbs (see the garden just behind) are quaking with envy!
This celery parsley will be flavouring all of our soups, potatoe & green salads for months to come! This monster was a gift from a friend; she told me that this was originally an herb garden but the parsley overtook the container! I did manage to rescue oregano, rosemary, thyme & chive plants which had been hidden underneath this monster parsley.They have all been transplanted to sunnier locations with room to grow.
