Cathyml...I looked at every store in our area..none of them sell Plum Jam/jelly....and I keep thinking about canninng some zuccihnni, I only know of one other person that has ever done that, it was long time ago...when we canned anything we had in our gardens if it was produced. I know they make them into pickles...but have not found an canning receipe for it as of yet. Kind of miss being out of my quart sized jars of chili also...as it was easy to pop one open in an moments hurry....coming in inside from out in rainy cold winter...or sometimes it was that way. Things I "can" because they are not easily bought. One thing would be nice...if your going to send us imports on food...to date it for us. Makes it easier for us to rotate our pantry foods to use them up correctly. I just bought some small canned hams from Denmark....and they are at one pound, and excellant item to make up Christmas Baskets with...along with things like panckae mix and homemade jam and jellies..some of the small beef jerky stuff at the store...english muffins...and assorted dried fruits. Toss it all in an basket, top it with the clear window shrinky dink plastic wrap and use an blow drier to get it to shrink and toss on an ribbon with an package of herbs of some kind for the window sill to grow later. Makes an wonderful door gift at the Chirstmas Season and one you can surprise people with. The plastic over it keeps the weather out.... whatever it may be doing at the time. I've even thorwn in at times fresh holly with berries/candles/evergreen pieces...or made mini-wreaths out of my old canning jar rings..wiht fabrics. I guess I best get going for now. Half the day is now gone. Talk later on. It may be Jesus went to dinner with us last night also...I thought on the way home, I saw him with my neighbor boys that help me now and then... and he waved to me as we went by. They managed one time to get my seat belt out of my car door without breaking anything...though he closed his eyes and kicked open expecting the worse I guess you know. Hubby was that weekend with the Boy Scouts, and I was petrified as to what he'd say when he got home..but they came through for me. I don't like car problems...but they are very apt at dealing with the automobiles.
