    I can attest to the deliciousness of the watermelon sorbet!

    If you are looking for an easy jam recipe, there was a great article in the LA Times a few weeks ago about small-batch no-pectin jam making. http://www.latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-calcook-20100805,0,2809915.story

    I made peach jam using this method yesterday and it turned out well. The jam is definitely on the thinner side, but tastes wonderful. Just peaches and sugar. I also made a batch with thyme as an accent flavor. What’s great about it is you make small batches, so you can experiment if you want.

      Hey Lelah! Thanks for your jam suggestion! I really like the sound of an easy-to-make, simple peach jam recipe. I’ll definitely check out that article. I’m used to making jam in such large batches and with pectin so that sounds like a nice change of pace. Thanks again!

    Hi Lacey
    you had quite a summer, and seems like you accomplished a lot! I wish my list was that long!
    Enjoy the rest of your summer!

      Hey there, Chef Dennis! It’s funny…I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot this summer, too, but then I look at how many unfinished to-do’s are still on my list. It is what it is, right? :) Thanks, I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer as well.

    I can’t believe summer is almost over, either! So much to do and so little time.

    I am still glad every day that you got to make that cherry pie though. Amazing.

      I completely agree, Joanne. I completely agree. :) Is it weird that the cherry pie was a highlight of my summer? ;)

      Hi Betty! Yeah, I’d really recommend writing a list next summer — and posting it on your blog. It made me feel more accountable to get as much done as possible ‘cuz others were actually following it with me. Thanks for the jam link, though I haven’t seen blackberries out here for a while. *sigh*
