Well, the Crab Apple Jelly is made. I was able to fill all 24 pint jars (plus one 250 ml jar) in just over 6 hours.I didn't think that was too bad.
The left over apples have been juiced, and I was able to make some "no sugar added" crab apple jelly. I found some plain fruit pectin at the store, and together with the juice and some Splenda, have made a really nice sugar free jelly. I'm excited. I think I'm going to get some unsweetened orange juice and try making a marmalade type spread. So far the Orange fruit spread is my favourite. With 12 grain toast. And Tea.
I also had a Tim Horton's inspirational moment today. On the way there, (I walked, and ended up taking the long way around when I discovered that the gate I was planning to sneak through had been locked up) I was thinking about what I would order when I got there. I was meeting a friend for coffee, but as donuts are verboten since November, I was only going to have coffee- and just a plain coffee, because they don't have any sugar-free cappuccino flavours. (although I did bring some sugar free French Vanilla syrup in a Dimetapp sample bottle in my purse, but I forgot to add it!)
Anyway, my dietician would be so proud. I ordered a 12 grain bagel, and asked for half of it to be toasted, and the other half put in a "to go" bag. They must not get many such requests, as the cashier seemed a bit confused about the whole concept.
No funny stories today, just a lot of walking. To Tim's and back in the morning, then to the Good Shepherd retirement home beside the church later in the afternoon to give my husband moral support. Well, musical support. He was doing a service there and needed a pianist.
Tomorrow looks a little more sedentary.
