Busy in the kitchen

Today I caught up on some of the plums and tomatoes
Eight and a quarter jars of plum jam that refused to thicken up...we had 9 but I knocked one over as I was putting on the jam covers!!!! We have ten containers of stewed plums with brown sugar and cinnamon, (and a burnt pot..woops!!) and six jars of tomato chutney. I thought as I had run out of garlic I would put some bush pepper and salt mix we have and when I tasted it, it nearly took out my throat!! I am not a fan of super hot foods so might have to find another home for these. The chutney didn't  thicken like it should have, we will see what happens once it cools down.
I had better sort some dinner now I guess, then after dinner I am going to trace this stitchery

Blogger decided the photo should be upside down so I took another one sideways, that seems to be ok with blogger but a bit difficult for the rest of us!!
I like this one, is long and skinny, this will keep me busy along with the stars.
Have a great evening.

You will be enjoying all your home made goodies well into the year while you complete your stitchery.

Lovely jars of goodies there Sue - even if they're not quite as you'd like them to turn out! Enjoy.
After all that time at the pots, I'd be ordering pizza!
