With the temperature of 43C outside, I decided to lock myself inside with my airconditioning and make up another batch of fig jam from my over burdened tree.
BIG MISTAKE!... I have NEVER EVER EVER had jam play up and make such a mess... it just "blopped" and "blopped" from the start to the end, and I am talking a FEW hours... I nearly threw the lot in the bin as it was going everywhere and I was getting VERY upset and extremely annoyed. I did have to throw one lot out as I divided it into a few pans and one pan just burnt the bottom straight away.
All over the stove:
all over the wall and cupboard:
reaching the top of the 10foot walls and even hitting the ceiling:
and all over ME!... (I even have some in my hair):
...all for this:
A friend told me that you shouldn't bake cakes on a hot day, maybe it is the same for jam.
I have just spent 2 hours washing down the kitchen, and now I am going for a shower and a change of clothes... so much for sewing today..it is now 4.30pm!
Until next post...
