Top of the Morning

Partly tired with a chance of zombie

I love breakfast! My sister Liz DOES NOT eat breakfast. She seems to manage fine without it, but then again, she is the type that sleeps in until lunch….so maybe that explains that. Today I ate toast with organic PB and homemade raspberry jam. I try to eat whole grain bread, but we were out. This morning’s toast was homemade white bread. Yes, it’s white. But it’s homemade. Can we consider that a happy medium?

Recipe for raspberry jam: 8 oz rasperries, 3 TBS granulated sugar
-If you like pieces of fruit in your jam, cut raspberries into 4-6 pieces. If you don’t have a fetish for fruit chunks, then go ahead and mash the raspberries in a bowl with a fork, or puree in a food processor.
-Place raspberries in a small bowl. Add sugar. Don’t stir; let sit overnight or at least for 6 hours.
-Pour raspberry/sugar mix into a medium saucepan. Bring to boil over low heat. Let simmer for until most of the liquid disappears, stir occassionally so that the jam doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. You can adjust the heat according to your tastes: if you like your jam a bit runny, heat for less time.
-Voila! Your done. While jam is still hot, pour into a small glass jar or canning jar.
