Spring jam making

The warm spring weather with us, with some bursts of summer heat. We went away for the weekend, and I am sure bunches of tiny new grapes appeared over the weekend on our grape vine - promising of a good harvest for this summer's grape jam making.

A couple of weeks ago with lemons from our tree I made French marmalade (carrots, lemons & sugar) - not as bitter as some marmalades can be), and Lemon Butter (lemons, butter, eggs & sugar).

Here are the results -

The Lemon Butter -


Is there nothing as homely as produce fresh from you own garden..........



 The new bunches of grapes....


We live only an hour or so from grape growing and wine producing areas....the photo below was taken at one of the vineyards. 


I am linking up with Mosaic Monday at Little Red House and the wonderful work of  Mary and other photographers from around the world.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

  4. Wow, Jill. I've just spent a few stolen minutes starting to explore your blog. It is so well done, on so many levels! I especially loved "Where I'm From," and the French marmalade collage. I'll be back to explore more later!

    Have a great week,
