This week has been rather dreary for me. I’ve had difficulty putting things together as far as baking is concerned. And don’t get me started on writing. I stare into a blank document for minutes together. With no outcome, I switch over to Facebook feeds. And then I get irked looking at my wall filled with pictures of babies (no offense intended to friends with babies) and cats!

If you follow my blog regularly, you know by now that I get sentimental about food that I have grown up with. Don’t get me wrong, I like being adventurous with food and try out different cuisines ever so often, but familiar tastes can give you a sense of warmth that is incomparable.
Yesterday’s post on strawberry jam was a sweeping hit; I had visitors from Nigeria and Lebanon which I almost never do. I can’t thank you enough for stopping by, by the way. But I took a moment and thought about what was so unique about a simple jar of jam? And there, I said it myself, “simple”.
In my home, a bottle of jam never lasts for more than a month; I always have about 3 different flavours in my refrigerator. For me, the idea of conjuring something that you have always bought in a store is exciting. There is nothing fussy about making jam – fresh fruit, sugar and a dash of lemon juice, how difficult can it get?
