WaRinialillianga. - I made jam.

Over the weekend I got quite a few sourberries so I decided to make jelly out of them. I have never made it on my own before, but since mom and I recently made some alagnaq (salmonberry) jelly in Kodiak I figured I could do it. I googled a recipe and despite a few minor burns it all went very well. I even boiled the jars to seal them. I got so much jelly I filled all my jars and then had to start filling up bowls. It tastes pretty good, but I don't eat much jelly so I will probably end up giving it away. WaRinialillianga amaryanek. I made jelly out of highbush cranberries.

In other news, Emmy has taken to playing with Lady a lot lately. Poor Lady has little choice in the matter, but she has been very patient. Emmy loves to put this scarf on her and just laugh hysterically.

Save a jar for me! Bring it with you to Kodiak at your next new words council meeting. It is the best jelly for making sauces for meat (deglaze the pan with good sherry and add the jelly and some rosemary or thyme). I used to make 'stinky sock' jelly a lot, but have not done so for a few years now.
