The Hangover...and Jam

Sunday, July 12, 2009
The Smart Man and I will be going to see The Hangover this morning. It's gotten pretty good reviews, and I've heard both men and women have enjoyed it, so we're going to give it a go.

And even though I love movie theater nachos, I will not be partaking - I'm quite sure the 1,100 calories and 59 grams of fat (!) are not in keeping with my Weight Watchers plan for this week.

Other than that, I'll be putting up a batch of strawberry jam this afternoon. My entire stock of jams went up to my Gram's assisted living facility on Friday, and I need to restock.

Have a good Sunday Hot Chicks and Smart Men!

Since when did movie food have calories and fat?

To hell with the movie, what kind of jams?

I made Drunken Fig Jam yesterday, 6 half pints, 2 of which did not seal properly.

I also have rasberry, blueberry, red currant, sour cherry and a whole bunch of different citrus marmalades.

NTSC, I make any kind where I can get the ingredients. My specialty is apple butter, but a case typically includes strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, triple berry, nutmeg pear, peach, pineapple, cherry pineapple, sour cherry, banana nut butter, and cranberry walnut.

I can't get fresh figs, and the bagged ones are typically not moist enough, so I usually skip that.

And I can't get boysenberries, either fresh or frozen, which really irks me.

And blueberry, although that's too sweet for most folks...

Drunken Fig Jam sound great, and maybe we could time your next-ish visit for when my fig tree is producing! And nutmeg pear? I would love to learn jam-making. That would be GREAT exercise!

Jam making is dead simple, find a recipe you like, heat mixture to 222 F, pour in to hot mason jars, put lids on, put in hot water (boiling) bath for 10 minutes or more.

You can skip the hot water bath and simple keep in the fridge. They will last months.

We happened to be in an Italian food market on Saturday and they had a case of figs for $10. Net weight was about 36 oz.

That is more flavors than I have on hand.

Banana nut butter? Holy moley, that sounds incredible.

Hey! Just back from vacation as you know ;)

Found a box from Janiece waiting - whoohoo! Apple Butter, thanks Janiece, you're the best Senior Chief ever.

That's what all the retired Warrants say...

You're welcome.
