Plum Sauce, Plum Jam, Plum Chutney

Plums plums and more plums. That’s what we saw when we walked into Mark and Nessy’s garage.

I couldn’t help myself. I snuck one. It was so delicious. Seriously one of the best plums I’ve ever eaten in my life.

When I asked Mark what he had planned for all those plums, he said sauce, jam, and chutney. I was so excited! I would get to make plum sauce and plum chutney for the first time.

Just by getting back in to home canning, makes my heart sing. It’s great to use local produce and provide delicious treats to your family and friends.

Unless of course, you’re too selfish to share.

It took 3 of us half a day to make everything. Andrew was even so kind as to sit outside in the rain to stir the boiling jam mixture, while I peeled and chopped 4 head of garlic (not for the jam).

I had such fun! And everything turned out so delicious.

Jonathan was in charge of custom labels and naming conventions.

You know sometimes when you eat something and it’s so good you really want to everyone to experience the complete bliss that you are as you eat it? But, it’s so good that if you share it means that you’ll get to eat?

Yeah, that’s how I felt about what we got to take home. Thankfully Mark didn’t feel that way!

So, what would you do? Hoard or share?
