A few more jam efforts and I found another use for my table top prints. I photograph old garage doors etc and then print them up on A3+ paper and then use them as table backdrops. I’ve used a couple here to line a normal kitchen cabinet to create some rustic old cupboard/larder shots for the jam. My neighbour has just given us a marrow. I didn’t know they could be made into jam but apparently they can so I’ll be trying that tomorrow 😋

Because I’m presently stuck at home I’ve been trying my hand at making a few jams and marmalades, with mixed results. Some have set better than others but they’ve all been edible. The first shot here was taken using an old vintage Pentacon 135 f2.8 lens. I was trying to force some flare. That didn’t quite come off but it did produce a really nice Bokeh. The bottom pic is a slice of Portokalopita, Greek Orange Pie. It’s made with dried, crushed filo pastry instead of flour.

Will you marry me? Woops, forget it, I’m old enough to be your mother. Joking aside, you’ve done something I’ve never tried. That’s making & canning anything. 
In these parts, we have sand plums. They grow wild in Sandy areas, often seen only in certain places in Oklahoma. Not sure about Kansas, where I am now. People who make jellies & jams love to pick these smallish fruits (armed against chiggers) & make sand plum jelly. I’d love to taste what you would do with the fruit. I seldom get any of it…you have to know somebody who makes it & hope they’ll part with a jar. My son did find some available at a Mennonite shop & bought me a small jar a year or more ago. Love it on toast.
Blackberry jam or preserves are my favorite. But I do make a mean blackberry cobbler.

Your images are well-done!

Hi Betty,

 

I’ve only started making jam and marmalade as we were buying home made jam from a local farm shop. It’s so much better than the commercial stuff. It was quite a trek to get the shop and the jam was expensive so I decided to have a go at making it myself. It’s not difficult and doesn’t require too much special equipment. Shame you’re so far away because we give away most of ours. Of all the jams I’ve made the plum jam is my favourite, closely followed by the blackberry jam. 
 

We have a glut of blackberries this year, I picked 2kg on Saturday mornings dog walk with no problem at all. They were jam by the afternoon.
 

I’ve just looked up a cobbler and it looks very much like what we call a crumble. Here’s one we had on Monday, made with some of Saturdays blackberries, with the family. I check a recipe to see if the crumble mix is made the same way..

This is my peach cobbler, I don’t think it’s like a crumble. It is made with pastry like for pie crusts, a bottom one & a top one. Sometimes I just make a top crust only. It’s pretty much like making a fruit pie but with more juice to spoon over.

Yesterday morning, I had to be at a hospital at 7am (not the one where my daughter works) and thankfully it was for a shoot and not a medical issue for me or anyone in my family! I was photographing a cardiologist who specializes in heart catheterizations and valve replacements (they can now do valve replacements going through a vein and not through the chest!! Amazing!!) Anyway, I took a few snaps of the procedure room before I left.

Here are a few recent uploads from me. It’s a mix of food, dogs and orchids. I made the the Biscoff Rocky Road below (Tiffin in USA and Australia I think) with my Grandson this week. It very moorish and I can’t stop eating it. Fortunately I’m walking (slowly) outdoors again now and able to work some of it off.
 

Any advice on orchid tag words would be appreciated. I know these are Phalaenopsis hybrids but I haven’t been able to work out if they have a more specific scientific name than that.

I'm trying to limit my sugar and eat healthy. You people are not making that easy. 😜

Ahh, Ed, you’re going to forget what American cooking tastes like. I have to tell you a tale. Years ago, when I lived in Ponca City, Oklahoma, on the street I came home from work on there was a tiny strip mall, about 3-4 small shops. Around the corner from one end, a few more. One was a tiny deli. I went in during my lunch hour & found this old Italian guy. About 5’6” tall and on the heavy side. He was transplanted from New York, it was very obvious from his speech. I liked him.

I ordered my first ever Reuben sandwich from him & tasted heaven. A sandwich so loaded I could barely open my mouth wide enough for a bite. Everything on it…the Swiss cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut, sauce was in perfect balance. I went back several times.

We moved away to Oklahoma City & I began my search for a Reuben to compare. Many delis, many restaurants and none held a candle to the New Yorker’s. Some were barely edible & many I couldn’t finish.

Same here in Wichita. But early this week I found the second best, all it needed was a bit more kraut & I would have been very happy. I’ll go back & ask for more sauerkraut next time.

So far, I don’t care for New York style pizza as much as what I’ve found at Casey’s convenience store down on the next street, which is delish & heavy on cheese & fixings. I prefer thin crust but they have a good hand-tossed also.

Amazing news, and what a nice opportunity for you to photograph the room!

 

Minimally invasive heart valve replacements is so great! This hits home for me.  I lost my oldest brother, 17 years ago, after heart valve replacement did not go well.  Maybe with today's medical technology, he would still be alive. He was just 53.

Betty, Lower Manhattan has been a center for delis and pizzerias for over 100 years. After the Irish settled, the Jews and Italians followed. A lot of people think pizza is Italian, but it's not. It was born in Naples and Naples did not become part of Italy until 1881, over 100 years after America got its independence. When I lived in Rome in the 1960s, there were just 3 pizzerias in the city. Fortunately, the best one was near where I lived in Trastevere. Nowadays, every restaurant, bistro, and wine bar does pizza.

 

My favorite pizza in Little Italy (NOLITA) was Emporio. Jay Maisel and I had lunch there sometimes before he sold his bank and moved to Brooklyn. I had pizza or pasta. Jay ordered the burger. Hey, they did great burgers.
