Tackling the Plums

Remember my baskets of plums from last week? I managed to ignore them until today. Surprisingly few had spoiled in the interim. I made up a batch of plum chutney, 5 half-pints worth, and as long as the canning pot was out, I stuffed the rest into jars, poured hot water/sugar mixture over them and processed them in a hot water bath for 20 minutes. That's nine pints, fewer than I canned last year, but enough as far as I'm concerned. Looking forward to getting back in the studio tomorrow, perchance to work on something new.
