Jam Disaster

From this.....

To this....


(In lieu of a picture of what happened next, just imagine: stringy, sour beige overcooked pumpkin swimming in sewer water)

Yeah.

I had my first jam disaster and I had such high high hopes for this fruit, because it seems assured to be a gorgeous, orange fruity jam and instead it cooks into 
a texture that makes pumice enviable and somehow edible!!

Argh!!!!!!

On a brighter note, I will be extending the sale until Friday as I have four things I haven't had a moment to get into the Metal Shop and I want to give people a moment to mull over them!

On that note, I am off to the shop to finish a final few custom orders and work on a few gifts.

Hope you are all well and happy in and out of the kitchen!!!!

ewww!

talk about being in a jam. what a shame. i hate when things that look and sound good...don't show the results. i made a new recipe for an Asian pork tenderloin stir fry last week. it was----dreadful! LOL. blech!

perhaps if we drenched my ka-ka pork tenderloin in your jammy-jam concotion---we'd have a hit!
