New beginnings

I have not been happy about where this blog has been going.  just photos and no real explanation of what or where.  I want to continue showing you photos,  but also add in some other things as well,  such as some DIY projects, or sharing a recipe with you.

I am an artist/ crafty person. and I would love to share some of the things that I know and learn.   I would also like to do this more on a daily basis..  So with that in mind:

.  I made some marmalade last week.  and even though it did not really set up,  the taste is great, and I have been putting in on vanilla ice cream.

Watermelon Ginger Marmalade

1 lemon
1 tablespoon,  minced fresh ginger
8 cuts Peeled, seeded, cubed watermelon
2 1/2 cups sugar

Zest the lemon ( cut the peel off without getting any of the white pith with it.)
Squeeze  lemon, reserving juice.  Chop the pulp

Place the lemon pulp and ginger on a square of cheesecloth and tie.

Cook Lemon zest, watermelon and spice bag in a non aluminum saucepan, over 30 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Then add sugar, lemon juice and bring to a boil over medium high heat.   Boil, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until thicken.  Discard spice bag.

Pour into hot jars, filling to 1/2 inch from the top.  Clean rims and cover.  Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes

hope you enjoy
