The Fruitiest Fall

Mommy! What'd you say? My ears are missing! 
Fall my Mommy #2 goes nearly NUTTY. She is nutty all year round but NOT quite as much as during the Fall. It is all about the FRUITS and the jams she makes. She cannot stop herself. And here's the rub . . . she seldom eats jam. Once in a blue MOON she might. But as a rule - no way jose.

Here is a sampling of what the last few weeks have brought

The FIGS were everywhere, she had Asian pears and augmented them with Bosc and Bartlett, a variety of jalapeno and salsa peppers, and lemons. She made fresh Lemon curd, Fig pear jam, Fig and Merlot jam, Ginger Fig jam, Red Pepper Flake jam. THEN THIS WEEKEND she comes home with apples galore, and yesterday she came home with 2 large bags full of LARGE pomegranates. There seems to be no end to this bounty.

Well, there will be and we will all be sad when it ends.

In the meantime, Mommy is busy chopping, jamming and freezing - not exactly in that order. Oh, and yes, eating fresh fruit . . . a lot!
