Judi’s Jams – Sweetness Abounds!
Has the ”Widder” Given Up on Men?
“What is She Doing Now?”
For years I have been making jam from the variety of fruit trees growing in my yard. And, for those same years I have been giving it away. I enjoy cooking – hence my two cookbooks – and I have enjoyed pairing together a variety of fruits that one cannot usually purchase in the stores. This year I have made a variety of jams using wines and liquors that have sparked an interest in those receiving them and several people have suggested that I sell the finished product.
Because I enjoy making them – it takes my mind off of other things, like “on-line dating”, I have been reluctant to sell them, but the cost of the mason jars has gone up so much this year that I am forced to either stop making jam, find a seller of the jars that is reasonable, or begin charging for the finished product. I didn’t want to stop making it; I can’t find a reasonable outlet to purchase the jars; so charging has become the solution. This is what I have decided to do:
Depending on the type of jam – see the order list – they will sell for $7-8 each. I will donate $1 to the OBRag and/or the San Diego Free Press for each jar sold (depending on the area that purchases the jam); And….if you bring back the jars – hopefully for a “refill” I will take 50 cents a jar off the total of your next purchase. I view this as a “win-win” for all of us.
The jam is limited; when I run out of that particular kind it is gone. But….I will be making more as the trees bear fruit. My peach tree is already loaded with little peaches, and last year I made several different varieties of peach jam – some spicy; some I mixed with red raspberries – that’s all gone; etc. When I say I have “limited editions” it is truly that – limited.
Let’s give it a try, San Diegans. The worst that can happen is that I don’t stay out of trouble; the best I can do is please your palate beyond taste. The first sales will be available on Friday, February 21st. My doggie’s birthday! (Mine too.)
