We got to spend a wonderful 24 hours out of the city this weekend at our friends’ place up in Athens, ON. Elizabeth and Tyler have been building a house (from scratch!) there, and it is nearly finished.
We drove up for some country relaxation, time with good friends, good food and knocked a few things off our list while we were at it.
First off our list was making jam. Luckily, Elizabeth, Tyler and Jennie have all made jam before, so they had the know-how and the equipment to help us out with this one. We did decide to accompany the jam making with quite a few cocktails, so there was the occasional “oops, guess I should have read the instructions first” or “are we sure this is going to end up as jam?”.
Overall, it was deemed a success, and we enjoyed the jam on pancakes the next morning.
