Days seem to be flying by lately. It seems that I am just getting Carl up then the day is gone and it is time for bed.
Yesterday we went to the zoo with Carmen, then she came by and we made jellies. It was fun. We made Grape Jelly and a pepper jelly from our Caribbean peppers (a very hot pepper similiar to Habanero) and bell pepper. That was a spicey process. Our hand burned even though we had gloves on. The vapors made us cough, Carmen’s face turned pink and I got a rash under my nose. It all stopped the minute we got the pectin and sugar in the mixture.
It took a while for the jellies to set. This morning the pepper jelly had finally set. I stuck the grape in the fridge to see if that will help. If not – oh boy I get to reprocess.
