First of all of the i'd like send a huge thank-you to all my beautiful guest bloggers from the other day. These are generally amazing women and work out the most wonderful meals. I’m so delighted they took the full time to showcase their particular awesomeness back at my site….thank you!
In the event that you follow myself on twitter you realize about this jam. I've been speaking about it for forever today. I’m not really sure exactly what took my way too long to get it on the website. I shall blame it on procrastination. That appears great.
We made this jam from fresh carrots We obtained within my CSA field. They worked perfectly. These were little but awesome sweet in flavor. In addition decided to utilize dark brown sugar in the place of light brown. In addition, once I state “I decided” i truly mean to express “as I was making the jam we decided to go to grab my brown sugar and realized I'd nothing. I quickly ran next door and my beautiful next-door neighbor gave me some to make use of. They only had dark brown…so I used brownish.”
