Shadow Shot Sunday


I made crab apple jelly with the crab apples the children and I picked at school. I have been looking through 'The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady', which is a book I have loved for a long time, and recently found a copy of in a charity shop. It is a nature journal with lovely watercolours, notes on weather, finds and also poetry. I wanted to take a picture of my jelly in the sunlight, as it is an amazing amber colour. It tastes good too-nice with cheese and biscuits. I bought four jars, in a massive overestimation of how much the apples would make-but half a jar is better than none! The first page pictured is a painting of those red and white toadstools, and the second is of crab apples and sloes-which I have also been using this week. I love the feeling af autumn the photos gives me.

I would love to try this jelly, paired naturally (to someone in the USA) with peanut butter on bread. Homemade has its own quality, and no doubt the students have a proud sense of ownership in a job well done.

The artistry of the old days is nice, the art of nature never out of style!

I still haven't picked our crab apples - they don't go very far, do they? - but the resulting jelly is such a delicious rich colour and it tastes good, too:-) Well done, you!

The ruby glow of your crab apple jelly is pure delight, Sarah... as is the light and mood of these photos! 'The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady' is one of my favorite books, and I take it down to look at and read often during each season. I found mine at Any Amount of Books shop in London, Charing Cross Road, near Leicester Square--happy memory just finding the book. :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

What a nice combination of textures and colours (and the jelly is beautiful) - altogether, so autumnal!
