Good Evening my dears..
Our holiday weekend is coming to an end but what a simply beautiful one we had here in Atlantic Canada..
Today our youngest son came out to give his Dad a hand and I had to show you all this picture that I took from the kitchen window..
I wonder if they know how pretty they look.. grin..
I caught them between the flowers on the window sill and the apple blossoms.. smile..
They were pretty thrilled with the nice straight rows they achieved in the garden..
Before Terry went to the garden he picked me a bag of dandelions..
Then I spent a little while cutting the petals off of the stems..
And by the end of day...
There were four batches of Dandelion Jelly..
It is delicious and tastes like honey..
Here is the link .. just click HERE...
He also picked these..
Beautiful apple blossoms..
They smell so heavenly, too..
Here they are all cleaned...
I had a nice conversation on the phone with my friend Ethel and that helped me get them finished.. smile..
An then there were four bottles of jelly..
Doesn't it look nice..
A lot of work, though, my dears..
Much easier to make strawberry jam, believe me..
No pain.. no gain or so they say... smile..
Here is the link for this jelly.. Just click HERE...
Oh, I thought I would show you a bottle of vinegar that I have on the go..
I took the pic the other day and I must say it is tasting pretty good..
Just fill a bottle full of the youngest dandelion leaves that you can find and stuff the bottle full..
Cover with cider vinegar and let sit for a couple of weeks..
I am planning on putting in some pepper pods, too..
You guys know me and my salads..
I bet the vinaigrette will be delicious..
I love trying new things... eh?
Such a busy day..
I cooked another organic chicken for supper but dear son had to get going...
Here he is at the end of the day saying good-bye to his Dad..
Please note the bag in his hand..
Some nice cooked chicken and a Chinese dinner that we had yesterday..
Enough left for him for a meal..
I used my new Oriental Rhubarb Jam on some pork and we loved it..
Today, I made 2 more batches ..
I had to include this....
If Dustin is here then Sammi is close by.. smile..
Well, that is all for tonight..
I am ready for bed.. smile..
I have kinda put my back out and am trying to baby it but these jellies need to be made while they are in bloom..
Remember, I am leaving for Lancaster County next week (Lord willing) so I need to get them made..
Thanks for dropping by and your sweet comments..
Welcome to the new followers of the blog..
Glad to have you all aboard..
Thanking God for you all...
