What… only 2 and a bit jars?

peach jamI really don’t know if it was worth all the hassle, mess, heat and dirty dishes! Only two and a bit jars of peach jam! I can’t even vouch for its being good enough to eat yet either, not being an expert on the matter.

Anyway, it’s done now, and the next 24 hours will be the test. If the jars don’t explode, then I can have a taste of the stuff on my toast tomorrow morning.

Watch this space (as usual!)


lampHere on the right you can see one of the restaurants we have visited fairly regularly in the Montello hills, just at the foot of the Dolomites and only about 60 minutes drive from Venice. The food in all these restaurants (with a couple of minor exceptions) is always excellent and reasonably priced. This particular restaurant (the name escapes me for now), run by a husband and wife team, him at the tables and her in the kitchen — boasts a fairly young, and very imaginative team in the kitchen so even though the menu is usually limited, it is certainly always inspiring and — more to the point — tastes good!
