I went to a very muddy garden today to see about taking off the last of the beets for a few more jars of pickled beets, only to find a few beet tops strewn about, and missing (of course) the beets. I did find deer tracks, so I know the culprit isn’t human.
So I came back home and made another batch of apple jelly. This time, with rum and spices from St. Lucia. I had no idea you could play around with jam that way, but now I do.
