At long last our little peach tree has produced some fruit, fine, large, ripe peaches with lovely red pulp, how amazing is that? For the next week Nick and I were eating four or five peaches a day sometimes sipping a little white wine with the peaches sliced in the glass( very nice it was too!!.), it was when we started offering them to Hilda the goat we realized we had had enough of peaches (she loved them but of course it was without the wine!) ... .. any way in the end we had had more than enough and couldnít eat any more . But unfortunately on the tree there were still a couple of kilos to pick! So I said to Nick: What do you think if I make some peach jam? he said: Simona we rarely eat jam at breakfast? You are right I said, but we could use it in the cake Iíll make .. and Nick said: Simona you rarely make cakes. Thatís what I love about my husband he is always so positive! **** I thought, what are we going to do when the tree is fully grown and producing even more fruit if we have had enough after one week.uke:
Anyway I decided to carry on and make peach jam which was so easy I got carried away and made a few jars of fig jam as well.
And you know what, just between us, the last five or six mornings when it has been Nicks turn to prepare our cappuccino, I swear the smell of toast is coming from the kitchen and when I checked ,the levels of both of the jars of jam are definitely going down.. .. ...so who knows maybe we can always change our habits of a life time.... canít we?!
I'm so jealous!
