  1. I love Plum Jam. We used to make strawberry jam with the tiny wild strawberries when we moved to the country from town. We didn't have much money and we got out and picked as many of the wild strawberries, blackberries, and dewberries as we could find. Oh, the memories that brings back to me. Thanks for the memories. Best regards to you, Ruby

  2. Greetings again! My all-time favorite has to be orange marmalade! I could eat it on just about anything. I've never tried making my own but your post makes me want to try! Maybe I'll find time to try this summer! Thanks and have a great April!


  3. ah darn,now I'm feeling peckish! I like jams and marmalades, not fussed what kind, but the ones with ginger are scrumptious.
