In a jam

Do you remember the plum jam I made last year? If not, you might want to (re)read this post. The thing is though, I don't eat a lot of jam. Never have. And even though my own plum jam is of course the yummiest, I still don't eat a lot of it. Which leaves me with a lot of jam still in the basement. Now, that wouldn't be such a big problem, it will keep for a while yet, but the plum trees have already flowered again. And pretty soon there will be fresh plums again. Plenty of them. So, plenty more jam!

As I was lamenting this fact a week or so ago, a colleague of mine had a brilliant idea: why not make waffles at work and have them put the plum jam on it! Well, today I had a split shift, I got the ingredients, mixed the lot, put it in the waffle iron and a few minutes later the first customers colleagues were out and about and eating my waffles with home-made plum jam!

One pot is empty now, another half empty and yet another pot is promised to a colleague, who will pay me with a hug. 

Yoghurt with plum jam is good as well I have heard...

    yum!!! Yes I mix jams into plain curd - it is much better than buying pre-flavoured curds!!! YAM xx

  2. I love plum jam. Maybe you could set up a little table and sell it at the curb side or perhaps you don't get enough traffic. That is a wonderful banner photograph of you. Really a prize winner and your hair cut is still dazzling!

  3. What a great idea and I bet it would be awesome with yogurt!
