Apricots everywhere!

Hi there!


For those of you who wondered why I was so quiet in the last few weeks: I was busy doing LOTS of things - one of them was processing apricots.

Our tree (earlier this year) ...



... had "tons" of apricots this year:


I had to give away lots of them - too much for 2 people!

I stewed most of them to "Marillenröster" (more liquid than jam, with bigger pieces of fruit and less sugar than jam)



I also gave away some jars to my family in Styria - they do have lots of apple and cherry trees there, but no apricots - it´s not the right climate and soil there.

As you all know we crafters do NOT give away anything without prinking it up!

So even time was tight, I made small tags for some jars...





PHEW! Harvest is over now and I´m sooo happy about that!


Thanks for remembering me :-) and visiting me today!

Have a great day!

  7. Wish I lived closer to you to share your bounty lol. We had a bumper strawberry, logenberry (and about to have) blueberry crop....what a swap we could have had lol. We have a few apples on our baby tree this year..but not a pear on the baby pear tree. Our baby peach tree had one peach...and boo hoo, it fell off half ripe. At least you can't get fat on apricots eh!! Hugs lin

  9. Oh how beautiful Ulina!! I have never seen an apricot tree and I just love apricots! Apricot jam is my very favourite! Many years ago, Laura Secord (a Canadian Chocolate Company)sold apricot jam with small whole almonds ... oh my, it was sooo special. This is a wonderful presentation of your jam with your gorgeous tag ... too nice to open and eat :) ! Love all of your photos Ulina!

  10. Wow - what a beautiful bounty! And oh my, what a lot of work! One year we lived in a house with a plum & pear tree, and goodness, it takes a long time to make sure nothing is wasted. What a great gift from you :)
