200th Post Blogiversary Coming Soon! More Peach Jam
200th Post Blogversary Coming Soon!-
Wow, it's hard to believe I'm almost to 200 posts! Geez, who would have thought? It's been a real learning curve, with questions for myself like-
what do people want to know?
is this boring? (I hope not)
does anyone go "gee what's Nancy in Boise up to now?" (inquiring minds want to know)
Well, if nothing else it's a fun virtual diary of sorts. I do leave certain personal things out for privacy sake. I firmly believe that many people may regret (later) posting things when it comes to too much honesty. I save that for family and close personal friends. So............. Interesting fact- I've had over 4,000 visitors from all over the world between April 22nd and today! WOW. Check out the cluster map near the bottom of the page.
I will be doing another special something. I don't know what it will be for, as I'm still thinking. Maybe something homemade ;) We'll see. Two more posts then I'll do an "official" special something with the format. Check back soon!
More Peach Jam-
I bought some more wonderful peaches (and apples) at the farmer's market yesterday. I got a 1/2 peaches and 1/2 apples (big!) mixed box for $15.00, picked Thurs./Fri. The peaches are dusty in this shot not bruised, they were perfect!
The market will be open for another month, but not with all the vendors. I decided to make more peach jam, with a better, lower sugar recipe. The first recipe in June (?) was too sweet for me (vene after reducing the sugar), so I found this one Easy Low Sugar Peach Jam. I love jam because it's so FAST! My total (not all in pic) was 16 jars, 6 spiced the rest non-spiced. Much better flavor with less sugar! I heard pinging all afternoon. I made a wonderful apple cobbler with about 1/3 the apples, saving the rest for something else.
