i am surrounded by the most amazing people daily. one of them is a beautiful woman who makes the most fabulous jam...sara. she gently caresses the fruit into delicate jam that preserves the integrity of the natural flavor. it is never too sweet or thick and over-cooked. my favorite is the blenheim apricot jam. its a vibrant orange hue with a tangy floral flavor.
every wednesday, she and i go to the farmers' market and roam around the sweet smells of the season. summer is here...and it's a jam makers play ground. tangy bleinheim apricots from james birch on the left, deep purple dancing demon plums from fitzgerald on the right, jeweled toned berries from pudwill and harry's laid out under tents.
