All that is left on my nephew's quilt is the binding. There is enjoyment in sitting on the couch hand sewing. I miss hand quilting, but it bothered my wrists too much.
I made some raspberry jelly and bacon jam this weekend. The smokey bacon jam turned out perfectly.
Remove all but two tablespoons of bacon grease and saute one sweet onion for 8 minutes. Then mix in 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika. Pour in 1/2 c. Water, 1/3 c. Maple syrup, 1/2 c. Brown sugar, 1/2 c. Apple cider vinegar. Boil 10 minutes. Pour into a mixer and blend until small chunks. Spoon into jelly jars, seal and refrigerate.
Delicious! Excellent on toast, patty melts, and bagels. Nobody said this was a healthy living blog.
This weekend kept me pretty busy. I'm waiting for good weather. I think next weekend I will put my seedlings in the greenhouse.
