How was your weekend?
From now till Christmas our weekends are looking pretty full, lots of catch ups and parties to attend, and all the end of year school things too, plus a birthday, so we will be busy, busy, busy!!
Saturday it just poured with rain, so I tried to do some housework and tidy the place up as we were having my in laws over for dinner. Nice pleasant evening, I cooked calamari again, and it was yum!
Yesterday the rain stopped, so I could pick the raspberries that were ready, I picked 1.7 kg!
Max was impressed! It has been a great crop so far this season, all up I have picked 3.9 kg, and there are plenty more to come.
I decided to make some jam from 1kg of these ones and max and Andre ate the rest, they are loving being able to gorge on raspberries.
.........very simple recipe, equal sugar to fruit and 2 tbsp lemon juice............
.....low heat till sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil for 15 - 20 minutes,.........
.....pour into sterilised jars while hot and seal!
........this is what I ended up with, 5 jars of homemade raspberry jam,
and I have to say it is pretty damn delicious!!
So I'm feeling quite the little home maker at the moment, loving my little self sufficient morning!
hope you had some fun on your weekend!
PS. Also did quite a bit of crafting, looking forward to showing you what's going on on this front very soon!
