Growing on the High Plains: A Fruitful Frenzy
Today, we're getting a little fruity as I share an annual tradition that takes over my kitchen for a while — but it's all for a good, furry cause.
Today's installment of Growing on the High Plains is heat-sealed and full of sweet-and-tart goodness. Yes, it's time to get the jam pot out and begin the "jarring" process of assembling an assortment of jellies, jams, compotes, and preserves for the yearly fundraiser that benefits our local humane society and animal shelter. From apples and apricots to strawberries, nectarines & "Indian peaches," the summer's bounty will be sorted into ripeness squadrons and prepared for their glass-and-metal homes. Though the flavors are sweet, the floor sure is sticky!
