I made some peanut butter last night. Just 100% organic peanuts roasted at home. I think I should have roasted the nuts for a little longer, or maybe a higher temperature, as the end product is a little dry. I am still happy with what I made though and will enjoy the jar over the next few weeks. Homemade peanut butter is miles tastier than shop-bought stuff, is a little bit cheaper and is also healthier as it contains no added oils, salt or other nasties.
This evening, we made some homemade plum jam. It was pretty simple and didn’t take too long. We just destoned a load of plums, added a heck load of sugar, brought to the boil, continuously stirred and then, after achieving the right consistency, we poured into sterilised jars. Oh, and then of course I added beautiful labels.
I’ve just had some on a few rice cakes and it tastes great although it is a little bit runny. So sweet and full of fruity goodness. We ended up making about 5.5kg of jam so it should last me quite a while. Well, like, a couple of days…
