Made the Aprium jam this morning. It reminds me of an old Mel Brooks line, from the 10,000 year old man. He was talking about nectarines, when he said “Half a peach, half a plum, I love that fruit.” The Aprium is half and apricot, but you get the gist. It seemed to have good acid and the jam was yummy. I used the apricot recipe from Linda Amendt’s book. The Apriums are from Tiny’s Organic, so my whole farmers market idea is working out well.
Also this morning I made the first raspberry of the year, more strawberry rhubarb (a surprise best seller) and more Gewurztraminer Jelly. Also now have a checking account and PayPal and my first internet order.
