Slowly but surely it's starting to look a lot like Spring time.
My crocus are out and they look beautiful!
The cats are enjoying the sunshine too,
The gardens really need hard work to be done, lots of weeds to be pulled and lots of mulching to do... not enough time for everything I reckon...
The creek does look good tough...
I did finish it.
They live now on my dining room, next to my Matryoshkas...
I love that neighborhood!
and it wasn't on purpose... but...
And to finish today's post,
I'll tell you about my latest experimentation in the kitchen...
I had bought a cantaloupe
(which I absolutely love!),
but it wasn't quite riped yet... :0(
and I just hate to waste... so...
I tried and made cantaloupe jam!
First I scooped all the cantaloupe's insides,
weight it and put in a big sauce pan,
adding the same weight in sugar.
Added a cinnamon stick and let it boil for about 20/30 minutes...
The cantaloupe chunks didn't look so good as I was wanting to make jam
so I got my stick blender out and blended the all thing.
Let it simmer for about more 15/20 minutes
and pour it into prepared can jars...
(don't forget to take the cinnamon stick out).
Put the canned jam jars inside the boiler again
and let it boil for about 5 minutes.
Remove it, let it cool, tag it, et voila!
Open the jar,
