preserving is good balm for the soul

plum preserves are the best.

the color is amazing. simply lovely.

canning using one of my aluminum pieces from my grandparents' home
connects my hands to theirs. a long tradition of canning in our family
brings me to this moment, to this jar.

and to keep the final scoops in a little jar for immediate use,
placing all the skimmed foam on top,
ready for some plain organic yogurt. mmm...

a fresh, beautiful bounty...
