I am thoroughly baked-out. I made Rata some cheese muffins yesterday, which illustrated to me just how little I want to mix flour with other things right now. But after the party on Saturday, Cat gave me some cherry guavas from her tree, so I made some jelly on Sunday.
The jars are a bit messy as I heated them too hot in the oven: when I poured in the jelly, it boiled over the top of the one on the right. But on the other hand, if it hadn’t boiled over (in the pan and in the jar) I would have had to make an awkward small jar of the remaining liquid. Better to say ‘hey look it fit perfectly into these two jars’ and leave it at that. Louis and I have resolved to eat less cottage cheese and buy crumpets again. Our food habits usually swing between these two grocery items. Sticky, sticky jelly on crumpets, drippy drippy. Yum.
