Refreshing our memories

I got out the book with the recipe for blackcurrant jam, and in it I found a note in my handwriting - "Our pan holds no more than 6lbs of fruit." I told him, I did. "Never mind that," said the stirrer - "bung it all in."

And guess what? Our pan did hold no more than 6lbs of fruit. So we had to get the old one with the bumpy base down from the top of the dresser, for the overspill. Never mind that - we made 22lbs of jam, and it tastes delicious. Tomorrow we need to scavenge for more jars, as there is twice as much fruit still to pick and process. Anyone for jam?

Haha! You should update the recipe book with a footnote. Perhaps the URL of this blog posting.

Next year you can get it out, read again, check out the photo, and then bung it all in anyway.

Yes. That is exactly what would happen.
