Wanna see what I did?

July 7, 2008 § 4 Comments

I am feeling proud.

First, organic plums from our tree. I started with about 3 times this amount.

Then the pitting and chopping. This was the hard part. Or maybe the hard part was not eating them…..

Then pureeing and cooking.

10 delicious jars.

The aftermath.

and the goodness.

It wasn’t too much work. I used this recipe, without the cinnamon (only because I forgot it!!). To can, I used the inversion method, which is easy-peasy. For Christmas gifts and such from my garden, I’ll probably use the full boiling water method, but I don’t expect this to last long, so it will do.

We needed biscuits to go with it, so I chose this recipe, and substituted 1/4 cup of the butter with applesauce. They turned out delicious and ever-so-slightly better for you.

Snack time was good today.
