In a Jam....

I am slowly working my way through the grape mountain, although because it is taking so long, quite a lot of them have already started to turn mouldy and have had to be thrown away.  It didn't help that I managed to catch the most virulent bug from the day job, involving a sore throat, banging headache and a fever, so standing for hours shucking grapes was difficult to say the least!

However, I have made fourteen jars of grape jelly so far, given away four, and have a third of the grapes left. I'm taking today off, time to get on with some painting. I'm sure the grapes will still be there in the morning and if some have gone mouldy, that's just unfortunate!
