I Present the Domestic Goddess

This afternoon I sacrificed some precious knitting/spinning time and dusted off the canning equipment. Yes, canning. As in glass jars, lids, big pot of boiling water...and a basket of peaches. The outcome? Peach marmalade, and it's tasty (if I do say so myself.)

We spent this past long weekend at a fishing camp in Kentucky. As is typically the tradition over a holiday weekend, we made peach ice cream. I don't know what I was thinking, but I bought an entire basket of peaches from the Farmer's Market. We used some for the ice cream, ate about as much as we could stand and the rest turned into marmalade. I had to work fast before the fruit flies smelled the heavenly ripeness.

Isn't it pretty?

The fish camp is in the middle of nowhere. Literally. There is nothing else around. To get there we had to take the Turkey Neck Bend Ferry across the Cumberland River. That was pretty cool.

This is the view of the cabin from the boat launch. It's a cozy 2-bedroom cabin with a great view of the river.
We did a lot of fishing, but no catching
The view from the porch this morning.
What a great place to relax! We will definitely go back.

Canning? Would you believe that I've been thinking about trying this too? Me? The one who never cooks?
The fish camp looks great. It would make a great fiber camp!
