Bread and Jelly

141103 Bread and Jam

I finally broke open a jar of Elderberry Jelly yesterday.  When I had made it I thought I was going to be stuck with jars of Elderberry syrup. I put the jars into the cupboard with hopes that given a little time it would set up.  Turns out it’s perfect and delicious.

With cooler weather here and the wood stove going it’s also time to start making bread once again.  I had high hopes of making it all of the time but found that I was throwing away a lot of it during the summer because it would mold before it was half gone.  Another reason to love the cooler weather.

I also hear that eating Elderberry jelly or syrup daily helps ward off colds and flu.  I’m feeling some sniffles coming on.

  1. Yum. I have been baking white bread recently as I am unhappy with Pepperidge Farms’. Used to love it but I don’t think it’s the same. The whole wheat sure isn’t – it’s squishy! I hate marshmallow bread.
    And there’s that beautiful China again!
