When Making is Better Than Eating

For me, it's preserves and liqueurs. I can't resist overbuying beautiful fruit at the height of its season. As much as my family eats fruit out of hand, eventually I'll find the latest batch of peaches or apples sitting on the kitchen counter, waiting to go bad. So I'll set up jam, chutney, or liqueur. I enjoy the work, too. It feels good to preserve seasonal produce, even if I don't have a garden.

Problem is, none of us eat much sweet stuff. Thank goodness for holidays when I can give the goodies away to appreciative friends. One exception is apricot liqueur. I keep that all for selfish little Me.
