Once we discovered wild plums on our property, our family tradition has been to go plum picking every Spring. This year was no different except that it wasn't a good year for any of our wild fruit. Nevertheless, we managed to pick enough for one batch so all was not lost. As jelly making sometimes goes, something went awry and all I ended up with was plum syrup. It happens, and I wasn't too motivated to fiddle with it when our temps here in East Texas were tipping the 100 degree mark day after day. So this afternoon I decided I'd try again. I dumped all the syrup in a pot, brought it to a boil, and added another box of Sur-Gel. I don't know if it'll be jelly or not, but it sure looks pretty. :)
